Crafty adventures from a Dane in Massachusetts

Dec 1, 2011

December 1st

December came. Suddenly. Wasn't it just October?

I am not complaining though. I am actually looking forward to all the christmas traditions. We are celebrating christmas with my family this year , which we haven't done in two years, so I am really excited about it. Although I like christmas here too, I miss all the traditions specific to Danish christmas, such as dancing (or walking really) around the christmas tree, having rice pudding for dessert and opening presents on the 24th:)

Another christmas tradition, which I know some people do here as well, is having an advent calendar or stocking with a little surprise for each day leading up to christmas. This morning I gave Josh a stocking I made for him. Maybe santa (or the "nisse" aka elf/gnome) will leave something in his stocking tomorrow...
