Christmas count down…23
In Iceland we count down to the 24th of Des. That´s the day we celebrate. At 18.00, or 6 o´clock on the 24th we ring ring dinga ling in Christmas. At my parents house by six everything was ready and we sat down to eat, usually a smoked lamb, something we call Hangikjöt. Now that I have my own household we say cheers at 6 and dinner is ready at some point after that. I don´t have a special dinner for that day. It depends on the mood and where in the world we are because I have spent Christmas in quite a few countries with my husband.
For the fun of it I made a little advent calendar
Every day until Christmas I will post something in the spirit of Christmas that I stumble upon while browsing the internet, recipes or fun things to make.
I love finding cool stuff to do for Christmas, specially something that doesn´t cost much…This being one of it. We have those guys lying around all over the place. I love this Idea.

And now we get to open number 1. YAY! Did everyone find the number 1 ?
