And who next? ๐Ÿ™‚ I'm very interesting your stories ๐Ÿ™‚

Sorry for a mistakes i text but I'm learning ๐Ÿ˜›

Well, the christmas habits in Finland differ from region to region and within families but here are some ๐Ÿ˜ƒ :

We put and decorate the tree some days before the Christmas Eve. On the Eve morning we have sauna and rice porridge (there is an almond hidden in the porridge pot, and the one who gets the almond will receive a special present ๐Ÿ˜ ).

In the evening we eat a very good dinner which includes some ham, turkey, salmon, mushroom-, potato- and many other salads, rutabaga-, liver- and carrot casserole and ryemeal bread and christmas mustard. I guess that's not even all what Finns have on the Christmas table... But anyway that is one example ๐Ÿ˜

After dinner it's time for the presents! (This part is exciting for little children as it's time for the Santa Claus too :--P) But for older people the most important thing in the Christmas is to have very good time with family and relatives ๐Ÿ™‚ We also remember already passed relatives by taking candles to their graves.

In Denmark you eat a lot of food: duck, roast pork, potato-chips, brunsauce, potatoes, apples with jelly.
After we have ate we eating more. hehe
As dessert we eat rice ร  l'impรฉratrice with a almond hidden and the person who finds the almond gets a small gift.
After all the eating we are dancing around our Christmas-tree and on the same time we sing some Christmas-songs.
After that we open the presents.๐Ÿ˜ƒ

sorry there is a mistake ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
Eating should be eat
