December 24 – Last day of the advent calendar

P1060834

The final day, the gift day, traveling day, family dinner and the day which just have to be HYGGELIG – cozy. Some families are going to church in the afternoon, others are busy preparing the Christmas dinner, or still trying to figure out if any gifts are missing, and if so, desperately trying to find a shop which aren´t closed. After dinner, the dance around the tree, with children just waiting for one thing, the last song and then – the gifts. I wish you all a Merry Christmas, Season greetings, Happy holidays. Thank you for following this years “Christmas calendar”.

Now time to invite some of the good old blog-Nisser, to let them send you their Christmas greetings.

December already. I feel that I am making Christmas calender’s all the time. Perhaps because I didn´t post much this year, despite my intention to. Well, no time for complains, Christmas is a busy time, and I have to use my energy on the Nisser around me, to ensure nothing mysterious will happen in the house, or to the Christmas spirit. I will tell you all about how it turns out, hoping that no Nisse will change what I am writing. That type of Nisse is by the way called a “sætter-nisse”, in the days with type setting in lead, he mixed the types in the small boxes, when the typographer wasn´t looking. I suppose that knowing what I refere to, means having a certain age.

First thing to do is buying a calendar candle. I did that. Such an item is not easy to deal with, if bought too late, especially not the good quality candles that burns very slowly. It has to show the right date. Imagine all the creative ideas that comes to ones mind, when the candle haven´t been lit for 3 or 4 days. To fix this is a typical December job.
