As someone coming from a part of the world that sees Christmas earlier than most :

OK, to some of our community here it is a religious time, for some its social or holiday time, for some its not relevant at all. But in ALL cases, I wish you well over this period of time. Keep safe !

Personally, we have just finished a stupidly large meal, with lots of family and a very happy time.  I would like to think everyone here could be so happy.

Are we talking Japan? or maybe Austalia?

Australia.

That reminds me: https://www.x360ce.com/
Check 'Austrian' version (even the flag is Austrian). :)

Thats great !  What a pity they have messed up a good joke by confusing Australia with Austria. Looks like a fair bit of effort went into it too.
(you need to click the button labeled "Austrian Version")

May be this confusing is made intentionally, as one more joke (like about american tourist in Austria - "And where are the kangaroo?").

Yes it is - check the link https://www.x360ce.com/Files/Website_x360ce/Australia_and_Austria_Big.jpg to the right of the "European version" link.  :D

Or people that try to compare the economy of the Australasia region to the Austrasia region. (hint, the latter's numbers are hard to find, and no, Austrasia is not Austra(LA)sia without Los Angeles included)

What a pity they have messed up a good joke by confusing Australia with Austria.

Back in the 1990s I used to buy a lot of O'Reilly books when on holiday in the USA and post them back to Australia which was still much cheaper than buying them locally because the local distributor charged 2.5x the US cover price and I rarely had to even pay the cover price in the USA at the likes of Borders or Barnes and Noble. Anyway, one time when posting three parcels of books back to Australia from the main PO in San Francisco, two parcels ended up in Austria before finally arriving in Australia some months later :)
