On Saturday the 19th of December we held
a 'fake' Christmas Evening for our entire extended family (Our selves,
Thomas' girlfriend-Alberte, Sofie's boyfriend-Stefano, Lizzie and Anders and
off course our current exchange student Maggie).
To show Maggie how Christmas is
celebrated in Denmark, we dragged her through the 'full Monty'.
First we bought some Christmas presents,
we baked some Christmas cookies, decorated the Christmas tree, and produced
Christmas Candy. After the traditional Christmas dinner, including Ris a lá
mande (where Mette got the almond), we danced around the Christmas tree and
finally exchanged Christmas presents.
A lot of fun for everybody!
PS: There was snow in Copenhagen this
winter, and we also had a big snowball fight.
