Cultural differences: Holidays.
Christmas in the USA:
Shopping for gifts! Getting into the festive spirit!
Excessive use of Christmas lights: aka the first image hit from googling “Over the top Christmas”
Decorations… So many decorations…
SNOW!!! (Christmas in Minnesota…)
And the sheer abundance of Christmas spirit!
And finally, Christmas traditions with the family!
VS. Christmas in New Zealand:
A typical Kiwi Christmas
Kiwi Christmas Tree
Pavlova – Kiwi classic
Classic New Zealand Christmas – Holiday Park on the beach
Unless you’re in the hospo industry, you’re off work for at least 2 weeks over Christmas. Maybe more…
How I personally treat Christmas in New Zealand:
Seriously. We can go tramping around Nelson and even the North island
