Thousands of motorcyclists will make their annual Christmas toy run through Adelaide and the Hills this weekend, with the charity event now in its 37th year.

Key points:

  • Toy run is in its 37th year in SA
  • Up to 10,000 riders take part
  • Riders carry a toy to donate to St Vincent de Paul

“It’s hard to [imagine] all the toys that have been delivered over that time,” toy run coordinator Harold Lindemann told 891 ABC Adelaide.

He said as many as 10,000 bike riders were expected to take part, but it was impossible to come up with a firm total because some joined in along the route and others simply headed straight for Callington Oval to be part of the day’s activities there.

All riders bring a toy and the St Vincent de Paul charity collects them to distribute to children at Christmas.

“This is a day when everyone can see us and notice us,” Mr Lindemann said.

“The other side is the camaraderie the motorcyclists have in coming together for a single purpose — that is to try to bring some joy to people that are less fortunate than themselves on this special day of the year.”

Then they all start their engines up at once to get going. It’s really something.

He said many people enjoyed the spectacle of the bikes lining up at Victoria Park for their 11:00am start on Sunday.

“If you go down to Victoria Park racecourse and see them all lined up on the Clipsal [motor race] track it’s quite awe-inspiring,” he said.

“Then they all start their engines up at once to get going. It’s really something.”

Many people line the route to watch the motorcyclists pass.

“We try to keep the bikes bunched up, rather than letting them spread out over the route, so there is a bit of a spectacle,” Mr Lindemann said.

The riders head out of the city along Hutt Street and Glen Osmond Road, then up the South Eastern Freeway to Callington, where there are food stalls and leather gear sellers among the attractions at the oval.

Christmas Island rangers have taken road safety to a whole new level with the construction of a “crab bridge” more than the island’s busiest road.

In preparation for the annual spawning season, rangers have been setting up barriers along the roadside to stop the crabs from being crushed under the wheels of cars.

A five-metre-high bridge has also been constructed at one point along the road to aid the crabs move across the island and continue their migration.

Plan now to avoid loved ones rows at Christmas, psychologist says

Posted December 09, 2015 13:39:06

Now is the time to prepare if you want to avoid loved ones drama on Christmas Day, according to a top clinical psychologist.

Professor Jane Fisher, who is director of analysis at Melbourne’s Jean Hailes Foundation, said while households normally hoped for “warmth and goodwill” when they gathered for Christmas, the day held high possible for conflict.

“We approach these [occasions] with high expectations, probably excessive expectations,” she told 774 ABC Melbourne’s Rafael Epstein.

“We anticipate it’s going to be particularly joyful or pleasant and then we’re disappointed when it falls short.

“It can be a time when men and women drink as well a lot and that can loosen constraints over what is said and men and women can turn out to be too direct.”

Professor Fisher said these who were dreading a repeat of a previous year’s Christmas argument required to make alterations ahead of time.

“I think, possibly, there can be some reflections on what happened final year, and possibly there may well be things we could put in place,” she stated.

“This is about disrupting some of these habitual approaches of undertaking issues … [asking] can we do this greater or can we do this differently?”

Present-providing has ‘potential for competitiveness’

Professor Fisher stated Christmas gifts could typically turn out to be “conflagration points” within households.

“There can be some who are more affluent than other people, some who believe it’s good to give children quite generous presents, others who feel it is greater to give a lot more modest or responsible gifts,” she mentioned.

“Probably even the children draw comparisons [between gifts] and the parents then really feel defensive.”

One 774 ABC Melbourne listener texted to say that Christmas time created them really feel “inadequate”:

“My brother-in-law usually buys these super-high-priced gifts that my spend can never ever match.”

Professor Fisher said the listener was not alone in that experience.

“That puts it extremely starkly, but I believe very honestly and accurately,” she said.

I think there’s a potential for competitiveness that is practically inevitable in big households.

Professor Jane Fisher

She said huge families were increasingly organising Kris Kringle-style present-providing, with every family member randomly assigned just one individual for whom to get a present.

Another listener said their family now concentrated on getting family members members “a truly acceptable card” with $ ten in it.

A lot of households, Professor Fisher said, set an upper limit on the cost of gifts, but added that it was difficult to quit people going overboard when it comes to presents.

“I consider there’s a potential for competitiveness, that is virtually inevitable in large families,” she stated.

Hosts, senior family members should ‘set the tone’

Much of the onus of organising a harmonious family Christmas falls on the host, Professor Fisher said.

“They’re the ones who can genuinely be generous … [and] make everyone’s contribution feel valued,” she mentioned.

But others have a function to play as well, she stated, particularly the senior generation who “have a huge obligation to set the tone”.

“They are the ones who have the most power, nevertheless, to set the parameters inside which the gathering will take place,” Professor Fisher said.

Alterations do not have to be huge, she stated, or disruptive to family traditions.

“It can be, perhaps, who is place to sit next to who,” Professor Fisher stated.

A lot of tension can be removed from Christmas Day, she said, by making sure that the workload was evenly shared all through the family members.

“Otherwise I think that people can be resentful and then they can burst out and say anything accusatory,” she mentioned.

External Link: Households at Christmas – Life and other catastrophes on 774 ABC Melbourne Drive.

Households where the female members do most of the day’s cooking and cleaning could try telling men and women ahead of time what was anticipated from them on the day, according to Professor Fisher.

“You could say ‘we’re not just dividing out who brings the meals, we’re going to divide up the jobs so nobody’s operating as well hard’,” she mentioned.

“Set jobs for the men and stop females from stepping in to do the operate.”

If pre-existing loved ones tensions are also fantastic, however, it can be greater to hold celebrations “someplace neutral”.

“Meet in a park, go to the beach,” Professor Fisher said.

She stated the a single factor not to do was to use the gathering as an opportunity to have it out with a household member.

“I feel absolutely everyone can then feel impacted by that,” she said.

“The blinding row is not actually a great remedy.”
