I’ve been a really good girl this year, so I hope that you can make some of my wishes for x-mas come true!
Since I’m going to spend x-mas here in Oz with B, there’s many things I’ll miss from home: my dear family and amazing friends, but most of all my sister Celine! We always do every possible x-mas thing together; bake cookies and gingerbread houses, sing x-mas songs, do x-mas shopping, make x-mas dinners and make x-mas decorations… I’ll miss you sweetie!!
To make x-mas without my nearest& dearest more bearable, I’ve asked my dad for some Norwegian x-mas essentials:
In the month leading up to x-mas (‘advent’), Norwegian TV have x-mas series that are showing every day until x-mas eve. My absolute favourite, is ‘Amalie’s Jul’ which was the last one I watched as a kid. I hope my dad can find it in the store so I can spend ever night from1.December watching it while eating Norwegian candy and read Norwegian magazines:)
On x-mas eve, (which we Norwegians celebrate from early morning to late at night), me and Celine always get up at 8am to watch x-mas TV for kids in our P.J.’s while eating our x-mas stockings that has been filled during the night by ‘Santa’;p This is the best part of x-mas, because we’re together, and looking forward to dressing up and have a huuuuuge dinner with our family at night and giving each other well- thought out presents:)
The most important thing on TV on x-mas is ‘Tre noetter til Askepott’ (3 nuts for cinderella??). It’s a movie based around the story about Cinderella made in Czechoslovakia in the 70ies… Instead of having subtitles, a Norwegian man dubbes the conversations and alters his voice to sound like the different characters… It might sound extremely weird to non- Norwegians (B laughed his head off last year…:p), but to us, it wouldn’t really be x-mas without it:)
These things will make x-mas down under a lot more enjoyable, as I can try and do the same thing as I would back home:) Luckily, my friend Helena from Sweden is coming to visit me for 3 whole weeks, so I’ll have a substitute for my sister;)
Santa, if I’m lucky enough to get my wonderful package from Norway, I don’t really need anything more, but still here’s my wish- list for x-mas:)
A trip to Sydney with my love! We’ve never been, Eyeshadows from Isadora (they don’t have it in Oz):)
and it’s one of the things you HAVE to see while in Oz:)
