Christmas in Australia: The Christmas Meal

Christmas in Australia is in the middle of summer, therefore the usual Christmas meal is often salads and cold meats, and seafood is very popular. Turkey is a traditional meal, although most families opt to have a simple barbeque with salads due to the heat. Plum pudding, pavlova, fruit salad and cheesecakes are favourite desserts. The Christmas meal is usually taken in the middle of the day, which is the hottest part of the day, with leftovers consumed for the evening meal.
