a merry christmas
and a happy new year.
I have appriciated reading your blogs and have received a lot of inspiration from you all. Hope you all will have a peaceful and merry chritsmas. And I am looking forward to see you again in the new year.
Tomorrow it is christmas eve and in Norway we celebrate christmas this day. We have traditions that the church ring the bells at five in the evening to ring the christmas in. I remember also that when I was a child we could not hear the church bells, but one man in the neighbourhood shoot the christmas in. He fired five shoots in the air and that was the sign of that christmas had started.
Tomorrow it is 4th sunday in advent and christmas eve. I share the last verse of my advent poem with you now.
Vi tenner fire lys i kveld
og lar dem brenne ned,
For lengsel, glede, håp og fred,
men mest allikevel for fred på denne lille jord,
hvor menneskene bor
We light four candles tonight
and let them burn down
For longing, joy, hope and peace
but most of all for peace on this little earth
where people live.
