Eight Aussie Christmas slang words and sayings
Dec 06, 2017
This Christmas, all of us here at the Macquarie Dictionary have kept our eyes and ears peeled for classic Aussie Christmas words and sayings. We've gone through our archives and had a good laugh at some of the more obscure anachronisms in our various slang dictionaries. But we think we've come up with a good list of some little-known and some popular phrases for you to pull out this Xmas with your family.
They range from slang used in the Northern Territory (rellies run) to sayings for Sydney-siders (check out the sixth image).
Tell us how you go, whether you've used them and any you think we've forgotten in the comments below!
