In Australia, a "bogan" is a stereotype associated with a particular demographic of the working class, in some respects, the Antipodean version of the North American "redneck". While the term is sometimes used derogatorily or self-deprecatingly, it has recently been appropriated as a symbol of community and belonging: Bogan Pride (the irony of which may escape some bogans), especially since the minerals boom in Australia has meant that many from "bogan" backgrounds have suddenly found themselves earning a very respective salary working for the mining companies - hence the emergence of the new bogan: the "cashed-up bogan".

Anyway, here is Santa, if he were a bogan. :-)
