Well, Melbourne has a Mediterranean climate with cold, wet winters, so it's not likely to happen there.

Summer sales at Christmas seem perfectly normal to me. What has always seemed odd, and I've lived here all my life, is the snow and rugged up Santa imagery used in all commercial promotions, Christmas cards etc. And the childhood Christmas lunches, consisting of roast chicken (we couldn't afford turkey, and even chicken was a rare treat), baked vegetables, and hot plum pudding. With the temperature almost always over 100ºF and humidity around 65%. My sister decided to revive this a few years ago, and sure enough, it was a stinking hot day. I told her that if she ever planned that again, she would eat it alone.
