also about some Australian traditions

  • «Aussie» is a colloquialism that was used during World War I to refer to Australian-born people of British or Irish ancestry.
  • Australia’s British heritage and multiculturalism mean that most of their traditions are adopted from far and wide; however, there are a few customs and rituals that are purely Australian, and although they may seem ridiculous to non-Aussies, they are a part of their true blue identity. Even though fully two thirds of the population lives in the capital cities of the states and territories, the romantic image of the Aussie jackaroo (that’s cowboy, to you) persists.
  • Larrikin is an Australian term for a hoodlum, but also refers to a part of the Australian tradition that both reveres troublemakers and finds humor in the darker parts of life - Larrikinism.
  • Muck Up Day - a senior prank is a type of organized prank pulled by the senior class of a school, college, or university to cause chaos throughout the institution. The pranks are usually carried out at the end of the senior school year as a going away mark on the school, and in some cases have become something of a tradition.
  • Once the school year has finished... - Schoolies - tradition since the 1970s - symbolises freedom and fun.
