Jeg vil gerne ønske alle dem, der læser med her, en rigtig dejlig Juleaften. Må I være ustressede, tilfredse, glade for de gaver I får, mætte-men-ikke-forædte, og så langt oppe på glædesbarometeret I overhovedet kan komme.
Her kommer en særlig julehilsen fra to meget gamle fyre:
Dansk - anno-lige-omkring-2.-verdenskrig
Norsk, omtrent lige så gammel
Den rituelle andeskrogsplyndring 23. december
@ N ~Merry Christmas! In Denmark/Scandinavia, the 24th is the big day. I woke up early this morning to find, that Santa's elves (or possibly, the elves' local representative) had paid a visit during the night and left some wonderful little presents in my Christmas stocking. Yay! Then I went back to sleep for a couple of hours. It is now noon, and I think I'll go to church this afternoon. Lots of people do it, but it's never been a tradition in my family - my Mom thinks it's too crowded (she is right, this one day of the year it really is) and prefers going tomorrow, on Christmas Day. Tonight, we will have the traditional Christmas dinner and my aunts and uncle will come. After dinner we "dance around the Christmas tree" - please don't start visualizing a sort of ritual jitterbug; we just walk around the tree, holding hands and singing Christmas carols :-) And then - we open presents!
I hope you will have a wonderful Christmas!
