Another Christmas thing I like is Perunalaatikko... Literally translated to "Potato Box". Sounds retarded. It's a special kind of sweet potato mash that is so soft and delicious and also somehow Christmassy... There's also a Porkkanalaatikko, Carrot Box, that's good too! They literally come in boxes in the stores, but home made versions, in ceramic dishes, are best!
There are some other things I'm sure. Maybe I'll update when I remember them or learn about them. Probably in a new post, just so this blog appears to be more full, haha.
Though a general thing here is that they have proper Christmas on the 24th and get presents in the night before bed, and in SA (at least in regard to my family and friends) we all celebrate on the 25th and we open presents in the morning. It's quite different. Oh and of course there's often snow here, so it's the whole white christmas thing which is very cool, especially when people light their pretty lanterns outside :3
OH and I'm going back to SA for Christmas! Can't wait!!! :D Expecting lots of biltong for christmas! Haha.
Tata for now~
