    so my girlfriend is studying in Australia for a term and I was thinking about trying to send her a care package or something nice and then I remembered Valentines day is coming up (well in a month..) anyway..

    do they even celebrate that in Australia?

    And if so is there a website that lets you like order flowers/chocolate and mail it to someone on Sydney?

    Thanks :D

    These questions made me laugh. But if you're being serious, Valentines Day is celebrated in the majority of nations around the world.

    As for the fairy bread, yes... Australians eat it. As for us here in New Zealand, lol, well let's just say we're not as wimpy as the Aussies. :p ;)

    'Fairie Bread' is still served at birthday parties, but only until the celebrant is five years old. And as BreakGuy said, the Australians still love their sprinkles, through they may still call them 'hundreds and thousands'

    For your flowers and 'candy' thought, just Google "Inter-flora" all the florists are nepotistic and inter-related the world over.

    KGB:cool:

    Nah, we say chocolate like you. Seems like 'candy' is always associated with the USA and sweets.

    KGB:D

    The candy reference we (Aussies and Kiwis) make is to candy canes at Christmas times. Generally we refer to "candy" as lollies. :D
