Yesterday ("julaften") was the big day in Norway, and it was a splendid day for us. Girlfriend made an excellent juleribbe, we drank "juleøl" (Christmas beer) and a little bit of akvavit. We celebrated with my parents, and they were very pleased with not having to cook themselves. Even my father, who is 83 and don't have much of an apetite these days, really dug in. It was good to see.
Today is kind of a boring day - in a good way. Some people go to church, some visit their family. We stayed with my family yesterday, and girlfrend's family live too far away to go on a short visit. And we're not going to church. So this year, today is dedicated to relaxation. Girlfriend announced she was going to sleep as long as she wanted to. Currently she's succeeding. Me, even if I decide to sleep REALLY long, I'm usually awake around 11 am. So I've been listening to the radio, and reading the papers that I haven't had time to read earlier. Lovely:-) It happens too rarely, but it is SO great with a day with absolutely no plans. Except eating more marzipan and Christmas cookies and drinking tea. And maybe a whisky.
God jul alle sammen! Hope you're having a great day!
