Episode 7 - Summer Wonderland

December 10, 2018

Summer Wonderland as used in the Air NZ Ad campaign in 2016

Now even though winter wonderland is a great song, One of my favorites in fact. It's not one we can really relate too down here when it comes to the lyrics. I thought it would be fun to compare the lyrics and break them down and show you a little about what Christmas is like for us down here in New Zealand, and these are also common to Australia.
