Greg and I have planted ourselves in the sofa with each our computers, Tour De Ski is on the telly and the fire place is creating a pleasantly warmth and an even better atmosphere.
This is how we are sitting now and this is how every day has been spent here in Norway during Christmas.
We traveled from London to Norway on the 23rd of December, just in time to wake up here in Arendal for Christmas Eve. In Norway we celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve, with Church, Dinner and Presents. For the rest of the days until New Years Eve we just relax, eat Christmas food and enjoy each others company.
For Greg this has been an unusual Christmas, with many new traditions and ways of celebrating but he seems to have loved it.
For me, this has been the best Christmas of my life. Spending time with my family, being back in Norway – back home, and to spend it with Greg – finally!
We have eaten out weight in food and sweets, watched a years worth of movies and just enjoyed spending the time together without the distractions of work and uni.
I feel like I have fallen in love all over again!
Sadly the snow has yet to appear, so we have not had a white Christmas this year but that is the only thing missing.
Here is a few pictures from our Christmas celebration in Norway
That was a little summary of our Christmas here in Norway.
Now we are sitting down to write our resolutions and wait to celebrate the New Year. We are excited to start the New Year stronger and better than ever before!
I hope you have all had a Great Happy Christmas and a Happy New Year!
