How did they get it so wrong? Christmas is nothing like it is in the movies. Catch up on all your Christmas favourites on Presto these holidays!

1. They always have snowmen in Christmas movies.

Cool. We have snowmen in Australia too, though.

2. Christmas movie sets are definitely pretty.

But Australian outdoors at Christmas is nicer.

3. In the movies, families gather around the tree and read stories.

In real life, we gather around the tree and drink.

4. Hanging by the fireplace happens a lot in movies.

5. Movie characters do Christmas things outdoors.

But our outdoor Christmas is sooo much better.

6. People stay warm at Christmastime in the movies, by the tree.

Yes. We do that too.

7. In the movies, people come together to sing Christmas carols.

But in Australia, people really come together to sing Christmas carols.
