My husband was a permanent resident in Australia for 8 years and decided late last year to swear allegiance and become an Australian citizen. He studied, took the test mid November and passed with flying colours. We anticipated his citizenship ceremony might fall on Australia Day 2015 but somehow council officialdom outdid themselves and turned the officiation around in literally two weeks.

We were going to have a huge party with family and friends and celebrate his Australian Citizenship on Australia Day. Although the official ceremony has come and gone, we will put on a second party - albeit a belated Australian Citizenship Party, where he gets to celebrate Australia Day as an official Australian.
Woohoo. I am getting ready to apply for Australian citizenship as well, although I don't think I will make it before the Australia Day. Congratulations to your husband.
We generally watch the fireworks, now called skyworks.
What? When did this change in vocab take place?

I'm in Ireland for Australia day so I shall have to have my own celebrations!
I hadn't even heard of Australia Day.... why is it this date? Did something significant happen then?
I'm a bit celebrated out at the moment, after the excesses of Christmas.... just lying low here until Easter!
Probably visit the local council's Australia Day events.
This may seem terrible, but I can't say I celebrate Australia Day. Even organisers are confused about what it is we should be celebrating - "Celebrate what is great".

I'm with you, I think we should 'celebrate' Oz. by being proud of our film/tv stories and watch them instead of american 'culture', watch some NITV at least once a week, stop pushing the idea that everyone loves getting baked on a beach, read our wonderful authors, learn our history past the fact that Capt. Cook arrived,..... having spent some time in the US, this is how their people see THEIR country, 28% of our population was born outside of Oz. -
I think we just don't know who we are, we have a PM who thinks we still belong to England, TV where people seem mostly to watch american colour by numbers, ...... time for us to grow I think.

Well said, sandw. I think you're right on the money.

Maybe we will go out see family, have a B.B.Q.
my boys will have a few beers, and a few funny stories.
Be very lay back, that's what it will make it perfect.
Probably enjoying a quiet day at home.
