Time has seriously flown by and I cannot believe December is here and it is almost the end of 2015. So my work schedule is completely crazy so I thought I would share with you some of the traditions that we have during christmas. If you are here for the recipes, just scroll down.
I am super excited to celebrate with my family. Our tradition is celebrating Christmas on the 24th of December. We watch tv all day, including “Journey to the Christmas Star“, “Three Wishes For Cinderella” which is dubbed to Norwegian and “From All of Us to All of You” Disney Christmas Classic.
My dad cooks all day and we eat a lovely traditional Christmas meal called Ribbe (Pork Ribs, but different that the normal version) which is one of the three different traditional meals, the others are Pinnekjøtt (we eat it other days during Christmas) and Lutefisk (never tried it, it sounds gross). For dessert we eat Rice Cream with an almond in. Whoever gets the almond gets a marzipan pig.
We always get dressed really nice for dinner and enjoy it as a family. After dinner we might relax and watch some tv before we open the gifts. We always open one at a time (unless stated otherwise). It’s really fun and it takes a couple of hours. During which time we might change into something more comfortable like PJs as time goes on.
If you are doing some baking during Christmas you might want to check out these recipes. Last year I also had a busy time during the holidays so my personally only made one thing. I am sorry about the pictures from 2013. I was going through a minimalist phase. Trust me, the cookies taste better than they look!
