Little Christmas eve

Well since Christmas is nearing, I thought I'd tell you all a little bit about how we celebrate the Holiday here in Denmark. In Denmark we call today "Little Christmas eve", because our celebrations are held on the eve of December 24th. We don't have to wait for Santa till Christmas morning, we get our presents before we go to bed on the 24th. Most people spend today, making the last preparations for Christmas, maybe doing some baking or decorating the Christmas tree.

Here in Denmark we have lots of pine cone trees, so our Christmas trees are natural trees. Most of us will be eating rice pudding tonight, because it is used in our traditional Christmas dessert "Ris a'la mande". We play a game of hiding an almond in the dessert, and the one who gets it, will receive a present. I could probably tell you lot's more, but I'd like to get back to the celebrations. So to end this post, I will give you a few holiday inspired pieces from our talented SAteam members.

I wish you all a happy "small Christmas eve" - Danagonia
