I will start with a picture of a postcard that I forgot to show you last time. :) It's very pretty, I think.
I started waiting for Xmas a long time ago. It's my favourite celebration! At the end of October I got first Xmas lights from the storage. Then when time went on I put more and more lights to our house. When December came all the lights were decorating our home, except for the lights of Xmas tree.
|Looking for Xmas trees....|
On the last Saturday dad, brother and I went to grandma's forest to get a Xmas tree. There used to be MANY suitable trees, but now they are so high! It took us a while to walk through the forest and look for two perfect ones. heh. Eventually we found good ones. :)
Xmas tree at my dad's:
|My dad made the decoration when he was little. :)|
And at mom's:
Usually Christmas is celebrated on 24th in Finland. As every year grandma and her man came to our place for dinner. We talked a lot, ate delicious Xmas food and opened presents. + enjoyed each others company, of course!
|Our dessert :)|
On the first Xmas day my brother and I went to dad's and celebrated again. ;) First we drank some GLÖGI, played our new board game (I absolutely love board games!!), ate and took a sauna. In the evening we watched a movie called 'Ice Age 4'.. It was as nice as the previous ones were. :)
Some presents that I got. :)
|A lovely necklace from my Polish friend :)|
|A gift from my sweet Finnish pen pal :)|
|You should try out this game!|
|Letter sets are always welcome!|
|I absolutely love this necklace! <3|
|Two more plates to my collection!|
|A heart rate monitor from dad - Now I definitely need to start doing more sports!|
My Christmas celebration has been lovely this year. I hope you all have had a great Christmas as well. And if you don't celebrate it, I hope you'll enjoy the celebrations that you do have in your culture. :)
Here I will add some more Xmas pics, mostly of postcards.
P.S. Congratulations to those, who read this whole post! ;))
