Just a quick peak in from me this morning to wish all of you a wonderful Christmas Eve! Ours is always quite busy. Like all Finns, we started with rice porridge with a magic almond for breakfast (daddy got the almond) and now everyone is busy in the kitchen, cooking all the traditional Christmas dishes (I talked about them in this vlog). I am watching the finnish Father Christmas on TV and writing today’s #BLOGMAS post.
One Finnish Christmas tradition is going to the sauna around noon and our family always does some kind of sports before that. This year my mum and I are going for a run and I will be wearing my Santa hat of course.
This evening’s schedule looks the following: after the sauna I will decorate the table, then we’ll get dressed up very nicely and have a three-course meal, after that we’ll bring candles to the graveyard, then we come home and have coffee and dessert. After coffee father Christmas comes and the presents will be underneath the tree. Lili always gets to give out the gifts to everyone. In our family we open them one by one. We throw the dice and who gets a six can open one of his presents, while everyone else watches. That way it takes a lot longer and everyone gets to appreciate them properly! I am most excited for my family opening mine!!!
At 11pm. we’ll go to the church for the Christmas reception.
I hope everyone has an absolutely lovely day with their loved ones! I love you all so much! Happy Christmas, hyvää joulua from Finland!
