Australia does not hold activities that are unique to Australia alone, except for "takes" on traditional Christmases, such as having a "Bush Christmas". Kangaroos may be substituted for reindeer in plays and displays, and many Australian Christmas songs have been written, which one can invariably hear being played when one views Christmas lights displays. On Christmas Day, which is held in mid-Summer, Australians often have an outdoor barbeque for Christmas dinner, or a picnic down at the beach, usually with a traditional game of cricket thrown in.
