‘Straya Day

On January the 26th, way back in 1788, the first settlement was established at Port Jackson (Sydney area).  This time each year Australians commemorates this day together in so many different ways.  Some families join together for a camping trip by a lake; some go to the local park to watch fireworks at night; some enjoy a meal at home with the family and many many many Australians pull a sickie over the weekend to get over the hangovers…

To kick off the  three day celebration, I offer this video as a tribute to the nations most honored day… or some bull like that…

  1. I’m gonna cook some snags to. At least I will once I figure out what they are.

  2. I watched it. Thought since I started it…….might as well finish it. 😦

    Does sound like a fun day. And you stated that the day was celebrated in so many different ways. Leaves one hopeful. lol

  3. I watched the entire thing, because I’m kind of enamored with the original “Thrift Shop” song as it is. Now I’ll have this tune in my head when we go up to bed shortly, and I’ll sing to my husband, “I’m gonna cook some snags.” Hope your first day of celebration was fun! 🙂

  4. Sounds like a good time is had by all 🙂

  5. You guys are a bunch of cocoNUTS! Hope you have a good holiday.

  6. I’ll never look at a swingball set in the same way again!

    Happy snag day to ya mate!

  7. Snags, Tinnys; Saussies & Bundy; Clix & dip… lol! Aussies… and I thought Pittsburgh’ers were bad with their “gum-bands n’at”.

Go on, give us a yarn or two, mate.
