22th December

late one today XD Have visit from the worlds most adorable little nephew=)

This day is the shortest of the year, and the night before was the longest. After this day the sun turns and the days gets longer again, so today you can’t do any work that makes anything turn around. You also can’t make bread, since it will fail.

After this day the christmas peace will fall, and it will last for three weeks.

21th December

Today is the day of Thomasmass, and it is celebrated because this was supposed to be the day when Thomas, one of Jesus’ diciples went out into the world to preach.

But in Norwegian tradition this was the day when people were supposed to taste of their homemade christmas ale, and it often ended in a big party and fights, since it was normal that people went over to their friends to help taste.

Today the preparations for christmas should be done, and in some parts this should be the last chance to fill up with firewood for the season. It was also said that if it was good weather this day, it would be good weather for the rest of the winter.

The girls that still hadn’t found out who they would one day marry, they had a new chance today, first they had to say:

“Jeg underlegger med St. Thomas,

og han skal la meg få vite

hvem jeg skal leve i lag med.”

Then you have to say the Lord’s prayer three times, then lie over to your right side and say:

“Er det noen som er bestemt for meg,

så kom og gi med vin.”

Then you have to read “ave maria” three times, and the article of faith three times. If you are lucky now, then your future man will come though the door.

Well, that is it for now=) You will get a lot like this forward, since this is the start of the traditional times^-^

19th December

More Disney! I love a christmas carol, and that is mostly thanks to this short version from disney. I had a vhs with this and some older christmas stories like “santa’s workshop”, I really miss that vhs…

If you don’t know the story for this one you need some schooling XD And for the record, I still think that Goofy is really badly cast as Marley XD At least the Muppets did that one right XD

17th December

OpsXD I sort of left out a day again XD I blame it all on my cousin for comming over to visit XD We had so much fun that before we knew it, it was not the 16th anymore 😛

Well, today I will share a trailer from a movie that I didn’t discover before a few years ago, and now it is just one of the movies I watch with my dear friends when we get together and have a christmas movie evening before we go each our way before Christmas=)

It is a movie that is more about childhood than christmas, but it also takes into account that Christmas is a big part of childhood. This is a movie that just shows how kids thinks about christmas. It is selfish, and it also shows that some kids can be cruel, but it is just how kids can be, and they don’t really mean anything bad with it.

Kids wants their gifts, and they want what they wish for, but that is just how all of us were as kids.

This movie is really great, and a old classic now, check it out if you already haven’t =)
