24th of December 2010

I’ve been busy this month because of my work and the preparation this Christmas. I’m so happy that I got what I wished for and for the wonderful gifts from my family and friends.
I celebrated Christmas here at Saudasjøen. This is my first home when I first came here to Norway and it would always be my home. 🙂 Some of my friends from the other side of the world are wondering about how we celebrate Christmas here, well I told them that it is almost the same in other countries too. We celebrate it with our families and we eat together. After dinner we sit in the living room and talk while watching Christmas programs on tv and after that we start opening our presents.

Anyway, here are some of the pictures I took on Christmas Eve 🙂

24th of December around 1:00pm : My father and I went for a walk around Saudasjøen and met someone with these 2 beautiful dogs on the way. The dogs are really friendly and smart. I forgot the first dogs’ name but the second one is Iza.

This is the tourist camping place at the same place.
The dogs’ owner. I found him kind and compassionate to animals. I could see that his dogs love him.

A beautiful friday afternoon. Yes it was cold but who cares anyways?

 At the cemetery. Christmas is not just for ourselves but for our love ones too.

Found an old iron junk on our way home. 

Our terrace full of snow!

Ice cake anyone? 😉
Oh I forgot to mention that we open our gifts here in Norway on a Christmas Eve. As far as I remember we used to open gifts in the Philippines exactly on a Christmas Day!
