Boxing Day rituals in Canberra

breda 26 December 2010 30

I nominate:

– watching the Boxing Day Test

– watching the start of the Sydney/Hobart race

– consuming your favourite hangover recipes, whether in solid or liquid form (tips welcome!)

– having a nana nap in the afternoon.

Of course, some people may go jogging. But I’m guessing they are in the minority.

What are other Rioters doing today?

Gee I’m glad I am able to enjoy Christmas and have a life unlike these poor pathetic individuals.

Ha ha that’s pretty funny. Deadpan!

One strange, uniquely Canberra Boxing Day ritual is to read the letters page of the Canberra Times and see the sad rantings of left wingers who had nothing better to do on Christmas Day than to write and send pathetic missives to their kindred spirits at the paper. And there were a couple of doozies in there this year including the latest ridiculous slobberings over Gillard and Labor by Mark Slater who says that the country is doing so well that Labor will be easily returned in the election. Another letter by Animal Lib nutjob Frankie Seymour claims that eating meat causes climate change and we face an Apocalypse.

Gee I’m glad I am able to enjoy Christmas and have a life unlike these poor pathetic individuals.

Always watch the start of the Sydney to Hobart and gobble down some leftovers.

And it appears quite a few visit The RA. Is that due to boredom or an intense desire to see what’s going on?

Well what with being out of town for the holidays, it’s the best way to keep up with local happenings.

Get up 11am. Sit staring at something. Have coffee. Realise that there is enough spare food for a spoilt platoon of really fat soldiers. This is peculiar as you ate enough food for same. Each. Wonder if it is possible to undo six months in the gym in one day. Feel like it probably is.

Remember the strength of the beer called Satan’s Gold from Belgium. Feel sick.

Plan to eat only fruit and vegetables for a week. And coffee.

Stare at something. Repeat.

If I promise to be good in 2013, can I have Christmas at your joint?

My Boxing Day ritual, year after year, is to recoup my Spring Carnival losses at the TAB.
This time of year is good for a punt. The big boys and girls are on holiday.

Any updates on the boxing day rituals?

So now you show your true colours Captain KKK.

Not only do they come to steal our jobs. They’re now coming to steal our cheap toasters.

‘@ The captain

In case you hadn’t noticed the white australia policy was ditched about 50 odd years ago.

Who gives a toss what they looked like’

I wonder if you will be so quick to come to thier defence when the language is changed so that these people and thier families from across the sea can read and speak it?

Dance, dance while you can as the empire burns around you. I live in hope that the 500,000 irish settlers tipped to come to our shores in the next few years will be enough to save our cultural heritage because what’s coming here now doesn’t give a toss for it!

I spent most of boxing day watching that comedy on WIN TV.

Australia’s first innings I think it was called.

“Boxing Day” is just another day, except a lot of the shops (except for the ones doing the “sales”, and the grocery shops) are closed, and the media is full of shit about this yacht race they keep starting on this particular day every year. It’s the “day after Christmas”, the first day after the total and complete shutdown.

Cricket, plus more drinking and eating, plus avoiding going near shops.

BBQ with the family 🙂 Except it was raining. So we had an indoor BBQ… kinda.

Destruction of the gingerbread house by the lake – mind you a lake full of dead trees this year instead of the usual canoing on the lake! followed by a few hours of shopping in Civic while parking is cheaper today – +1 Captain RAAF re who was there.
