A real South Aussie will drink local beer and wine on Christmas Day. Crack open the Penfolds or the Bird in Hand and drink lots of it. Maybe a little too much.
2) Brag about the upcoming holiday
Every opportunity is a perfect opportunity to brag about how the shack on Yorkes is coming along, or the holiday rental you scored on the Fleurieu.
3) Begin AFL banter
It's only 98 days until the next AFL season begins. And Uncle John across the table is a Port Adelaide fan. No better time to convince him that the Crows are in for the 2017 Premiership.
4) Complain about the pre-Christmas activities
The parents of young children in the family will no doubt mention how they got poured on at this year's Christmas Pageant. Or, they'll mention the ridiculous line up they waited in for a photo with Santa in Myer.
5) But seriously - Gift SA products
There's no excuses not to be purchasing South Australian products for presents. You can get choccies from Haighs or Melbas, or handmade treasures from local markets.
