This year we did things differently

Christmas in Norway is celebrated on December 24th. On Christmas morning children wake up to find stockings filled with candy, and when the clock strikes 4 PM they get dressed in their nicest outfits and join the rest of their family for a good, old-fashioned Christmas dinner before opening the presents under the tree. A typical Norwegian Christmas dinner tradition includes hot cinnamon porridge with a hidden almond. Whoever gets the almond wins something. In my family that “something” was always marzipan.

This year, we did things a little differently. I woke up around ten and started decorating my gingerbread cookies.

They turned out like this. I’m sure they would’ve been better if I had more time, but I was kind of in a hurry to get my makeup done and get going.

Because this year, on this day (known as “Lille julaften” – little Christmas eve), we were going to my mother in law for an early Christmas celebration/dinner.

Here they are; the best mother in law ever, and my future husband.

Her house was beautifully decorated!

Tried to use the Christmas tree light to create a cool picture effect. Not sure if I like it..

Tomorrow we’ll be opening presents. I can hardly wait!
