Merry Christmas!

Or Happy Holidays if you prefer.

In Norway we celebrate Christmas today, the 24th, I don't know why, maybe it's because Santa can get one more day to deliver the presents.

We don't celebrate it in the morning either. We have a "normal" day until 5pm, which means shops are open and everything, the shops are usually open until 2pm or 3pm. At 5pm the church bells "chimes Christmas in", so at 5pm we have our Christmas dinner, which consists of pork ribs (not the kind with BBQ sauce) or lamb for most people. I don't really like either so I have rice porridge.

After we've had our dinner we wait a few hours, in which time we play games, read books/comics or watch telly or whatever. Then at 8pm (ish) we open our presents.

So now I'm going to get out of bed and watch some traditional Christmas programs on telly that I haven't seen in 3 years because of living in Britain.

Enjoy the Holiday, however you celebrate it!
