The residents of the southern Californian coast probably understand better than most what us Aussies go through during the festive season; no snow, no mistletoe, no need for that mulled wine or hot chocolate to stave off Jack Frost’s nipping at your nose.
No, the Aussie summer is all about beach, barbecues, flies, sunscreen, sparkling wine and fun in the sun.
So in that respect, there’s a lot we can relate to in this little festive nugget, released by up and coming US songstress Bonnie McKee who, we suspect, will receive a fresh career push in the new year.
It’s a cute-as-a-button song that’s accompanied by a cute-as-a-button clip, filmed in one take entirely within the confines of a studio, in which Bonnie demonstrates the differences between the winters of the northern US states and those of southern California. While the former is undeniably magical, we do love a little bit of sun on our skin in the great southern land.
