Christmas will not be complete without listening to Christmas carols. We're lucky in this country as we we don't have to do it in freezing conditions wearing bulky unsightly parkas. Instead, we can don our favourite airy sandals and shorts, singlets and tank tops, and sitting in our green leafy parks with our picnic while listening to the joyous entertainment.

Almost all city councils would have something organised, often in collaboration with the local community organisations like churches, rotary clubs, or others. And hopefully it will bring about the message of peace, sharing, and happiness that we all deserve.
