This Christmas, Westfield has teamed up one of the nation’s most-loved comedians, Julia Morris, to remind Australians that Christmas doesn’t have to go exactly to plan to be extraordinary through the ‘All We See is Joy’ campaign.
“Christmas is chaos, no matter how much we plan otherwise, but that’s the great thing about it. This Christmas, there are no disastrous Santa photos, just a chance to share and laugh. There are no cracked pavlovas, just an excuse for extra whipped cream and berries. For me, ‘All We See is Joy’ is about celebrating the real Aussie Christmas, even if it’s not ‘picture perfect’,” says Julia.
We caught up with Julia to talk about how she keeps smiling through the craziness of Christmas.
Westfield: What have been some of your favourite Christmas moments?
Julia Morris: I have travelled to some pretty exotic locations for Christmas over the years, including Jamaica, where Santa arrived on a boat and was a girl. Nothing beats waking up with my family all under one roof. Many grown-ups and two children, all in our jarmies, inspecting reindeer droppings. Magnificent.
W: What has been your biggest Christmas disaster and how did you handle it?
JM: Christmas is all about little disasters. We put so much thought into the day being perfect that we forget our expectations rarely meet the reality. When I was nine, my grandmother bought everyone in the family a very expensive watch. Well, everyone except me. She bought me a new shower cap. A SHOWER CAP. This is one of the few examples I can think of where the thought really didn’t count. I still can’t tell the time.
