I've never seen the point of housewarming parties though..

Yes, but I never do anything for Australia day, in fact I avoid it wherever possible, too many drunken idiots about.

Posted 01 January 2013 - 05:32 PM

Yes, because I'm not Australian.

Why not? I'd d it any day you're free and at least no one will be at work.

Certainly I would!

Just make sure you have Southern Cross temporary tatts and Aus flags to drape around everyone's shoulders...

I agree, why not? Just think you could make your house warming party an Aussie themed one. Should be fun.

We are having a housewarming long weekend. We have moved a 1.5-2hr drive from most of our friends, so it's a great time for them to spend a weekend with us without them having to worry about the long drive home through rural areas at night. It also gives our friends the freedom to come and visit anytime over the 3 days, and we also have a great Rodeo on in town for them and their families to come and check out (so they will also be supporting the local economy wink.gif .

Happy Housewarming!

Well, not quite no-one ,some people do work public holidays, you know wink.gif

Anyway, in answer to OP, a house warming party on Australia day or day after it seems as good a day as any to me- I wouldnt throw a party on Xmas day for obvious reasons and not on Good Friday, although that mightn't bother other people as much as me.


Any day you choose may have some people unable to come for various reasons but Australia day no more or less likely than any other.

Yep, the public holiday is on the Monday anyway  original.gif

And yep, I'd definitely go, if I wasn't working!

I think Australia Day is a great day for a housewarming party. We had an Australia Day / housewarming party a few years ago and it was a great way to have a casual get together with friends. This year 26th and 27th on the weekend so either would be good, just depends what sort of party you want. Have fun.

#18 Expelliarmus

Posted 01 January 2013 - 05:50 PM

Sure.

#19 JuliaGulia

Posted 01 January 2013 - 05:51 PM

Definitely.  Also, for a housewarming I would expect minimum effort - just casual bring your own sausages to chuck on the bbq kind of thing.

Hope it's great!

Posted 01 January 2013 - 05:55 PM

Yes

In fact I am going to one this year (not yours I promise)
Knowing I don't have to work the next day makes me far more inclined to do the 1.5hr drive to get there.

#21 Fifi LaRue

Posted 01 January 2013 - 06:04 PM

Yeah sure, I'm a likely to go on Australia Day or the day after than any other day, presuming I'm free.

#22 Jingle Flea

Posted 01 January 2013 - 06:14 PM

Ok, MOST people don't work on public holidays!

#23 Isolabella

Posted 01 January 2013 - 06:21 PM

Yes. I don't do anything on Australia Day apart from relax.



#24 miinii

Posted 01 January 2013 - 06:22 PM

sure would

#25 Azadel

Posted 01 January 2013 - 06:22 PM

I would. In fact to really capture the spirit of Australia day, turn up at a complete stranger's house, declare you're claiming it, and throw the party there.
