For the “white” population of Australia, this is quite a celebration, for the First Nation (Aboriginals) this is merely a reminder of 200 years of disenfranchisement which were to follow. Typical for this day, is the announcement of the Australian of the year.

The custom is that already in early December, the Christmas tree is set up and the presents are placed underneath. However, they are only to be opened on the 25th. In addition to presents, stockings are filled with sweets or small toys.
