I hope every one had a wonderful Christmas ? 🙂

As I previously mentioned our Christmas was a little different from our normal Christmases as I didn’t get to spend Christmas Eve (That’s when we celebrate, dancing around the Christmas Tree and stuff :p) with my siblings this year.

My parents are divorced so that probably already makes ours a little different compared to non-divorcees, but I like it and I normally get to celebrate two Christmases with my siblings and one with each parent. This Christmas was different as we we’re pretty much all split up, but none the less a great Christmas. I was lucky enough to spend it with my grandparents, my mum and stepdad and we had a brilliant time. I won the almond present (yep, that was directly translated from Danish Monkey-with-hand-in-front-of-eyes-emoji)!

I’m not sure you lovelies know about this tradition? But for those of you who don’t know. We eat Risalamande or Risengrød and in that, there’s one whole almond (with no skin). The one person who gets the almond has to show it to rest of the group and then win The Almond Presents – it’s normally some kind of sweet. When we were younger there was always ALWAYS cheating involved so no child would start crying haha, but this year being an only child for Christmas, there was no cheating. I won fair and square HA! Mum! 😀

It’s a bit of a strange tradition, I know. Do you have some strange traditions in your family or countries?

Now on to the next Christmas lunch! xx

I’ve earlier written about not just appreciating big events but also the little things. Therefor every Friday I’ll be posting one or more things that I’m grateful for the following week. This I believe is the way forward to a happier every day.

“It just sounds really lovely with your family. It’s so unbelievably lucky, that you all have each other even though you don’t see each other every day” a friend said over a pint the other day. And I couldn’t do anything but agree with her. To think that we are four siblings, two sets of parents and even more grandparents, that all agree on that we are each other’s favourite. That we can, as we say in Denmark, “hygge”, no matter if we’re just a few or all of us together. Each year in March we all skip in and rent a massive house where we just hang out and enjoy each others company.

This she said after we had talked about what my plans were in September and I told her, I’m going home to see my family. So well known that in September I have a massive family gathering, I’m comfortable and extremely grateful leaning back on the sofa with my Soy Latte, that I’m also grateful for.

Are you guys family orianted? And what are you grateful for this week?
