The meaning of Christmas
Gift of gifts
The chest of drawers in my bathroom
dressed for Christmas
We had a snow storm last weekend
glad I`m not a tractor
We had another snow storm last night
and had to dig out the rabbits house again.
They have heat on iside and are happily warm and cosy...
noone cold or hungry for Christmas
The edges of the road look like this now,
well over 100cm of snow
and huge drifts in places.
- 5 this morning and the howling wind has died down
making it quite pleasant. My mum and I went for a lovely walk along the road to get a breath of fresh air while the Turkey is roasting. Won`t be goint to church today as the roads are pretty bad after the storm. Got stuck out driving last night and wow was that awful, the road was gone many places and I had to more or less guess where it was. Can`t live here without a 4wd car.
We celebrate Julaften in Norway, which is Christmas eve, with parcels and dinner five o`clock.
As I grew up in an English - South African home, I have stockings and Father Christmas coming in the night, Turkey, mince pies, christmas cake as well as all the norwegian traditions. My grandfather was afterall Norwegian :)
We have the best of both worlds so to speak.
