* The commercial networks don't generally air [[ChristmasEpisode Christmas-themed television episodes]], because it's the summer non-ratings period, meaning that we only get to the Christmas-themed episodes of American sitcoms around May. However, they can and have been made, the season final of ''Series/BlueHeelers'' for example, as well an early ''RoundTheTwist'' episode and a few from ''Series/HomeAndAway'' (which runs all year). Creator/TheABC airs quite a lot of Christmas-themed stuff, including the ''Series/DoctorWho'' Christmas special. Christmas movies also air as ubiquitously as anywhere else.

As a result, later Christmas activities can involve going to the beach, assuming a) you live near a beach (which most do, with a generous idea of 'near'), and b) you're south of the Tropic of Capricorn -- most of [[AustralianWildlife the more notorious Australian sea life]] are found north of that line, and they are ''not'' a laughing matter. If your family owns a pool, odds are most of Christmas Day will be spent in it, with short breaks for lunch/dinner.

** There are also all kinds of house rules, such as Tippy Go[[note]]or Tippity, Tip-and-run, Tip-hit, Hit and run, Tipsy, Tipneys, One Tip depending on the state[[/note]] where the batsman has to run when they hit the ball even if they just hit the tip. Common additions include Six and Out, where hard to field areas such as the roof or the water when at the beach are worth 6 runs and an automatic, and Can't get out first ball, for when younger and less coordinated players are in the family. TheOtherWiki has a bigger list [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Backyard_cricket here]].

** For the same reasons of "we want to sit in an air-conditioned cinema and be entertained", a lot of movies get released on Boxing Day in Australia. They're usually fantasy, science fiction, or in some manner fantastical, although there's usually a comedy in there as well. All three installments of ''Film/LordOfTheRings'' and ''Film/TheHobbit'', ''Film/Eragon'', ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfTintin'', ''TransformersTheMovie'' and plenty of others came out that day.
