Happy Australia Day!
January 26th is when we celebrate the arrival of the First Fleet in 1788 (basically when the British claimed sovereignty over Australia). And back home, this day is usually celebrated with lots of barbequeing, fun at the beach and Pavlova.
Even though I am all the way over in Houston, I still wanted to pay homage to my roots - so to celebrate this day, I made some Pavlova Cupcakes and some Damper.
Tonight I am teaching some of my American friends the Australian National Anthem, and some Aussie slang. It should be fun. It's funny to hear what people from other countries know or think about Australia.
What are some things that you know about Australia? And if you're an Aussie - what did you get up to for Australia Day?
Have a Fun Weekend.
