Here's a little picture spread on how we spend our days of Christmas...
Yes, "days" as in more than one...Think about that! Here in Norway, we celebrate Christmas for multiple days with Christmas eve, and the first and second day of Christmas and so on, so the good times and amazing food last a while :)
Many people take off the days between Christmas and New Year's, and we do our best to do it, too. We have the snow ploughing, animal care and such, but except for that, we try to dedicate ourselves to family and friends. This year we really did, and we had blast!
The first day is a long breakfast day before going to a Christmas party at my dad's, sister's place. We pretty much have a party of some sort every single day from the 22nd to the 31st... :) It sounds like a lot, but it's close family and friends, so there's no stress.
Food, food, food! Here is a breakfast buffet at my mom's house the second day of Christmas!
My mom's side of the family were all there.
I try to sneak in some horseback riding.... :)
Visiting Kristoffer's family in his village is also very fun. They live in a place with lots of old houses and culture, high in the mountains.
View from cross-country skiing!
Dinners! :D Every day, something new and super good. I feel I have gained 200 pounds this holiday season. Give and take :P Like my mom says...
It's not what you eat between Christmas and New Year's that makes you fat...
It's what you eat betweent New Year's and Christmas ;)
Liv was the heart of every party, and the aunts, uncles, grandparents and cousins love to spend time with her!
Fancy a night in a 300 year old bed? We do!
What have your days of Christmas been like?
