There is Christmas Eve, and then there is Little Christmas Eve --- Lille Julaften.
In Scandinavian tradition, December 23rd is celebrated with as much
enthusiasm as (Big) Christmas Eve.
Mr. Nielson and Wesley cook Danish foods, and of course we eat the
Risalaemande; which is delicious rice pudding with a cherry sauce
and a special whole almond inside for the lucky someone. (Mr. Nielson)
Its a tradition and a highlight of our holiday. We honor our Scandinavian blood with this dinner celebration and with our dear friends.
Also, tonight I also drove the car around my neighborhood with the back open
while the Little Nies jumped out delivering Christmas goodies to
friends, neighbors, and family.
It was really magical, and I hope they never forget that moment.
Praying for snow. It feels like October here. Boooooooooooo
The little Danes.
