Christmas around the world
« on: December 01, 2014, 07:01:19 PM »
Alright guys and girls.

Here in Denmark you burn a candle bit by bit until you reach the 24. of December which is christmaseve in Denmark.
Do you do anything special in your country?

I know it's a typical female question, but I just wonder how you all celebrate christmas.

From the very patient wife.

Hi, Here in the UK we have an Advent calendar which has 24 picture windows on it that have a chocolate behind it for each day leading up to the 25th.  :D :D :D

We do the chocolate advent calendars, too. Both my boys get their own, and sometimes we put candies into a tree shaped thing we have.
We also bake sugar cookies in various holiday shapes and painstakingly frost them all in various colors so that the reindeer looks like Rudolph, and the candles have yellow flames, etc.
