What a wonderful idea Yiota and her friend had with hosting Christmas Blogger Party!
I think the idea is great!
So, I have to give away a wee bit of my christmas this year... Actually, I haven't had time to think about Christmas yet, with university etc...
So I think I'll just quickly tell you about how Christmas goes on here. Won't have any pictures, those from last year are really crap!
The tradition is here to always have a swedish buffet, it actually gets smaller and smaller, but that's okay, with me being vegetarian, I'm happy when I've got my favs!
So we get:
-Jansson's frästelse, a potatoe and anchovis gratin
-redbeat salad, with in it: redbeat (seriously?), apples, hering etc...
- "brunkàl", a hot dish made out of cole and Golden Syrup
And the desert is some "Ris à la Malta", in simple words, milkrice with whipped cream in it, with berry sauce. That's yummy!
And after having eaten, we open presents. That's fun! Especially with little Gipsy messing seriously around with papers and "helping" with the package opening!
And what we do then... well it depends. Watch TV, play a card game, read and crochet....
So that's for the 24th. 25th is about the same, family again, cosy but a bit too calm. I can get quite restless and panicky when I don't have something to go (or even know that shops are open, that there is some life somewhere!) But it's okay!
So that's that!
And I forgot! I do believe in Father Christmas!
