Yesterday we first visited my grandparents, then ate some rice porridge for lunch, we usually have barley porridge, but rice is easier. After that we went to the sauna. Later we ate the traditional Christmas dinner, i.e. a smorgasbord with foods like ham, potato and rutabaga casserole, beetroot, salmon, peas, pickle etc. However unlike some posters, we are pretty quick about the dinner, and I think it lasted significantly less than two hours. After a few hours it was time for presents.

Today, on Christmas Day, we haven't done anything really, just relaxed. Food has been the same as the dinner yesterday, and judging from how much ham we have left, will be that also tomorrow.

Destroyer25;5178318Your a Finn, I'm a Dane. There are so many different spellings. Norwegian, Danish, German, Swedish, Finnish, Latvian, Lithuanian, Estonian.

Unfortunately for you we are all speaking English right now, and thus it is spelled smorgasbord, which is the Swedish word smörgåsbord without the Umlauts. ;)

Besides, I'm pretty sure that table is spelled 'bord' also in Danish, when did you last speak the language?

I jsut came back from 1st christmas dday family dinner, not sure what the plan is for tomorrow. We used to visit some other family on second christmas day but I got a call that will be (moved?) on Sunday instead.

Edit: Any one else does anything on christmas boxing day (we Dutchies apparantly are the only ones that call it 2ns christmas day):

wikiThe Netherlands is the only country in the world who celebrates a 2nd Christmas Day. This idea came up about 50 years ago, when the Dutch goevernment wanted to give their civilians an extra day off.

:D
