*Sorry for the dramatic title, but it’s hard to name blog posts and sometimes my inner drama queen takes over and this is what happens;)*
I hope you all had a great christmas and celebrated it with your loved ones.
I had a really great day and evening, and I went to bed with that happy-sad feeling you get when you realise that it’s over.
This year we hosted, which I can’t remember when we did last time, and it was my dad’s side of the family we celebrated with. My grandparents, my uncle, aunt and my two cousins came at around 2 pm and we spent the day playing Nintendo together, which was really fun and totally nostalgic. I have no clue how I was able to play Mario Kart for hours on that thing when I was younger, ’cause now my hand started cramping after 5 minutes. That made it difficult to win. Which I didn’t, but that was probably more my sucky Mario Kart skills than my hand cramping. Unfortunately 😛
We also ate Æbleskiver my grandmother had made and I was thrilled since I hadn’t eaten a single one the entire month, (usually we get them at least a couple of times in December). You probably don’t know what “æbleskiver” are, but maybe you know what “Pancake Puffs” are, that should at least be the translated version of it. It’s a Danish tradition. And a very delicious one at that.
Most of the adults cooked together, while the rest of us played games, talked and watched some of the christmassy stuff that was on the tv.
Dinner was pretty good and my aunt made us play a really funny game when we had to clean up afterwards. We had to throw a dice and then if you got
a 6 you had to start cleaning up the table and kitchen. The dice was passed on to the next one wh
o then had to throw it and see if they got a 6, and so on. It was only allowed for two people to be in the kitchen at a time, so every time a new one got a 6, another person had to be replaced.
Maybe it would’ve been more effective if we’d just cleaned normally, since it was hard to get anything done before you were being replaced, but it was definitely a lot more fun than the other possibility, and in the end we’d managed to do all the dishes.
We walked around the christmas tree later while we sang hymns, which I again believe is a thing not many others do, correct me if I’m wrong, and then it was time for presents. Yay:P
I loved seeing how happy everyone got when they opened my presents and they seemed to like them too.
I got a concert ticket to Little Mix, a pair of shoes, two pairs of yoga pants, a cute teacup, a book from my best friend with (ugly) pictures of us in and a couple of other things.
Tomorrow we’re having a christmas lunch with my mom’s side of the family, so I’ll get the rest of my gifts then. I really look forward to seeing everyone, since we didn’t celebrate christmas with them this year, and next year when we do, I won’t even be home. I’ll be in France celebrating christmas there.
All in all it was a wonderful christmas, the only thing that was missing was the snow, but you can’t have everything can you.
How was your christmas and who did you spent it with? Did you get any great presents as well?
I’d love to know:D
At last, let me just adress the fact that this is my third blog post in less than a week. Damn. *high-fives myself ’cause I’m all alone*
