Christmas at Bondi Beach

It is Christmas day here at Bondi Beach. It is traditional for Australians and visitors alike to celebrate Christmas at Bondi Beach. Just about everyone loves it, from families with children of all ages to groups of singles.

It is a beautiful sunny day without much wind and a low swell. Unlike the Northern East Coast of Australia at this time of the year the water is always 'chilly' - well, for me, at least! Yet, I love it. Especially after feasting on turkey and Christmas pudding, I always find it invigorating and a good awakener.

Traditionally, after the exchange of Christmas presents, people will hit the beach. Bondi Beach is about 1 km in length with white sandy beach, offering plenty of room for everyone.

Backpackers and visitors from all over the world will invariably head off to Bondi Beach, either for a visit or to spend some time in the area. It is one of the most popular beaches in the world.

Offering a vast choice of self-contained accommodation, hotels and backpackers this is the ideal spot, especially at this time of the year, when there is a good chance of getting a summer's day full of sunshine like today.

However, at Christmas it is wise to book your accommodation way ahead as everything tends to get well booked out.

Picnics at Bondi Beach are a popular theme. The picnic baskets brimming with roast turkey, ham, christmas pudding and the bubbly, it is full of cheer and fun for everyone. Always a good time to catch up with friends, family and loved ones.

Umbrellas spread out throughout the beach for the 'sun conscious' or otherwise it is quite amazing just to sit back and watch a continuing parade of muscled bronzed bodies wondering about the length of the beach.

Having been a long time resident of Bondi Beach, I have watched it grow and evolve. I remember when some 40 years ago all I could find on a Christmas day was the traditional chicken shop. Not another shop open apart from the cop shop and the Bondi pub.

Today this famous beach is a smart place with all its cosmopolitan cafes, restaurants and ice-cream parlours - yesterday I could nor resist a double scoop of the new Aussie Panattone flavour and Christmas pudding. Just delicious!

I have spent so many Christmases at Bondi Beach I lost count. Yet, iIt never stops to amaze me how I continue to love it and always look forward to inviting friends and family to share this special day with me.
