Santas in Sydney



Living in Sydney a couple of years ago meant experiencing our first holiday in the summer season. We found this scene one morning – the massive “Clause for a Cause” run along the harbor. An amazing gathering of Santas. 

 Aussies sure know how to have fun.

“It came without ribbons! It came without tags! It came without packages, boxes or bags!… Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before! “Maybe Christmas,” he thought, “doesn’t come from a store. Maybe Christmas… perhaps… means a little bit more!”

  1. That is so Australian Jane and look at the blue sky. Had to smile at the 3 santas…

  2. This is brilliant Jane! A beautiful way to bring in the holidays and for me the New Year ~ a great post and best to you with your writing and photography in the New Year. Cheers to a great 2016.

  3. Santa’s and yet no snow, so strange to see but then again i’m from Canada so a Christmas with no snow is odd. Although this year it has been unseasonably warm. Happy Holidays Jane!

  4. I love this, Jane! Wonderful shots, as always! All the best in 2016.

  5. WoW .. surreal … a Santa stampede in the making ..
    Glorious fun and a great capture Jane !

  6. Love the revisit to Austraila !! Happy Santa scenes!!!

  7. The first one’s a stunning sight, Jane! Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones 🙂

  8. Oh, very cool! It’s the massing of all that red that makes it so impressive.
    Hope your holidays are happy and looking forward to your posts in the new year.
    Best, Patricia

  9. I LOVE THIS!!!! what a christmas treat!!! Merry Merry to u guys!!! HUG

  10. Great! Especially as a kid we adopted every ritual of the Northern Hemisphere Christmas without snow! Hot English roast when it was 30 celsius, not Fahrenheit, outside. Have a great Christmas and New Year!

  11. Traditional Santa garb sounds a bit too much for a Sydney summer, but shorts are a great adaptation to the costume!

  12. Considering its summer in Oz when it’s Christmas this must have been really special to gather so many at one time. Great event and great photo to capture its energy.

  13. Wow, that’s crazy. What a sight to see. I’ve never seen a Santa in shorts before. Thanks for sharing, Jane!

  14. Wow Jane, that’s some gathering!

  15. That definitely gets the holiday cheer flowing!

  16. HO, HO, Ho! Can’t wait to share these Santas in Sydney with the grand kids!


  17. Thanks for starting my week off with a laugh.

  18. Happy Holidays to you and Bob. Love the Santas! Hope to see you in the New Year but it will not be February. Busy with Mary Jackson. Can you email your address? I’d like to send you my Christmas card. Love, Cathy

  19. Jane, wonderful pictures for this holiday season. Made me smile.

  20. Hahaha how funny this… photo’s for a big smile!! And how strange not being in summer at that time of the year… isn’t it? I was once in New-Zealand for four months, also in the Holliday season. But I did not see as many Santa’s…

  21. Ha! What if all of them started to give away presents 😊

  22. Oh, I remember when you sent us one of these photos Jane, I loved it then and love them now! What a perfect choice for the holiday week challenge!!

  23. Thanks, Jane. Your Sydney Santas gave me the biggest Holidays smile of the season. The Aussies do have a corner on the Wonderful Life market. Your captions are choice. Your pictures sublime. I loved the intimacy of “We Three Santas.” Happy Holidays back at ya mate!

  24. Love the sea of red…I can feel the warmth…have a wonderful holiday ~ cheers from Alberta ☺️

  25. Love the way australians have fun! They are leaders on that! Cheers from Argentina!
