Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone! 😀 I hope you all get to spend the holidays with your loved ones.

We’re celebrating Christmas on the 24th in the evening, so that would be now, but I’m taking a small break while my parents are clearing the table.

We just finished dinner: a 5.5kg goose with caramelised potatoes, red cabbage, prunes, apples, and gravy for the main course and a particular dessert that I really like but haven’t heard any other family eat for Christmas (my sister really dislikes the the porridge that the traditional dessert is made of so our family has found a different one). That’s an aweful lot of food, but there will be some left-overs for tomorrow’s biiig Christmas lunch 🙂

My sister-in-law found the whole almond in the dessert so she won the “almond present”. Again. I don’t know how she does it, she must have an almond-radar that leads her to it when she takes her portion 😀

In a moment we will walk around the Christmas tree and sing carols. And then it’s time for the presents, chocolates, home-made Christmas cookies, and home-made chocolates.

What are your Christmas traditions?
