Free Christmas Fun for Everyone
One thing I miss about Christmas is snow. Having experienced white Christmas when I was growing up, somehow spending Christmas on the beach still feels strange, even after all these years. But the great thing about living in Australia and especially on the northern beaches is that Christmas brings communities together for Christmas Carols and various Christmas events.

Unlike the northern hemisphere, our Christmas weather is great for getting out, having a BBQ or going to the beach or local park and catching up with family and friends.

Every year, there are many events that take place leading up to Christmas and this year is no different. So if you live on the northern beaches or are looking for something to do with your kids, check out the following events and activities.
