More Christmas…

So, yesterday we celebrated Christmas. As usual we spent the day at my mom’s house, though it will be the last year since it’s on the market and they will be moving out this Spring.

We went there already in the morning for the traditional Swedish Christmas breakfast; rice porridge with cinnamon, sugar and milk. On the side, often a piece of bread with a slice of the Christmas ham.

This year was a very white Christmas, and Viggo got to go out and play in the snow while the others were preparing for dinner and other things.

Vroom! Vroom!

Vroom! Vroom!

In the afternoon we had our Christmas dinner, after which we started in on the gifts. All of which were lying underneath the Christmas tree of course. Not surprisingly, Viggo got the most gifts.

My sister loves marzipan so we had made some marzipan figures. Mine are the little wrapped gifts, the tree and the candy cane.



Mom and my brother Isak had made a gingerbread house. Or at least that’s what they originally said… In the end they made a gingerbread castle!

It’s supposed to be a “replica” of Haga Castle. Our Crown Princess and her family currently resides there.

Do you recognise it?

    I baked a lot of things this year, but no gingerbread. Oh, well!

    And my great-uncle’s wife was Swedish, so his Christmas dinner tradition with his son is the same as yours tonight! :)
