Australia Day 2010

last night was lovely. After spending all day organising myself, my emails and my new website I realised that it was time to head to the park to see the parade! It was sooo lovely. I can see exactly why a “British” day would be a brilliant idea.

When you think of Australia day you might be forgiven for assuming that everyone starts a BBQ, wears cork hats and sings Waltzing Matilda. Now, i’m not going to deny that probably did happen in a few households but the parade (as you can see from the pictures) was not made up purely of beer drinking Bruces and Sheila’s. Instead, it was a celebration of all things australian ( well south Australian) and that included over 100 different nationalities and communities showing off their traditional dances and cultures. It was brilliant. A true celebration of multi-culturalism. Fabulous and something that is probably needed in the UK. It wouldn’t hurt everyone to stand on the side of the street and celebrate each other, embrace each others querky ways just for an hour or so. It made me even prouder to be here!
