Now the Christmas feeling really begins to say inwardly to us. We start, like many others, by watching traditional films on TV. I, for my part, have to see three nuts for Cinderella and discovered a little abruptly a few years ago that I was starting to grow up well, when the prince had become a child and that the king had become the handsome one.
At 12.00 we eat millet. During the years I have lived, I think I have only been twice without mule. The first time I was a baby and fed on milk. The second time I remember well. I was really disappointed when we were served rice porridge. Not that there is anything wrong with porridge, but it will be completely wrong on Christmas Eve, when you already have a nice tradition and the almonds did not help either.
With us, the Christmas decorations start outside. I think it's so nice to meet this sight when I get home. The stairs are not that big, but we have room for two chairs and a small table. I have decorated with some cozy Santa pillows and a Christmas tablecloth.
I bought the cute snowmen many years ago and they have a permanent place outside, to wish Merry Christmas to everyone who comes to visit.
I got the cute little Christmas tree from my stepmother and the piece is home-chopped.
In the hallway are a pair of Santa slippers and a basket of Christmas headgear. Everyone who comes to visit us on Christmas Eve can borrow, so they get in the Christmas spirit.
In the hallway, the food for the Christmas goats is also ready. I'm just as happy every time some Christmas goats come to visit.
The old, wood-burning stove must of course also be decorated for Christmas.
On one of the kitchen counters I have placed some cookbooks with Christmas recipes and the wine bottles have been given Christmas outfits.
I have chosen to use green tablecloths today. They fit perfectly with the beautiful flowers that Kari in my local Interflora shop has set up. I look forward to setting the table later today.
I went a little crazy in the treasure hunt yesterday, so the decoration two a little overhand. We usually put the welcome drink here.
The living room in the first is mostly decorated with gray, white, silver and a little gold. I think it creates a lovely calm.
I have had this Christmas crib for many years. I think it is so charming, with the chubby characters.
The Christmas lantern and the cozy elves have a permanent place in the stairs up to the second floor.
Fancy some inspiration for Christmas food? Du will find many exciting and traditional Christmas dishes, both for the actual Christmas dinner, Christmas breakfast, cakes and meals the other days of Christmas HERE .
With this, I would like to wish a Merry Christmas to all AperitivoMat's readers!
