Although Australia is a multicultural country, the main religion is still Christianity and Christmas is a major holiday in Australia. It is celebrated with the exchange of presents, and usually a family gathering on the day itself.
The main holiday of Christmas is only one day that is celebrated in this holiday season. Boxing Day is another public holiday Australia-wide, and many sporting events take place on Boxing Day. Boxing Day is also the traditional day for major sales in the big cities. In all, Christmas is a three-day event in Australia, from Christmas Eve to Boxing Day, and many Australians take the week between Boxing Day and New Year's Day off.
