Christmas!





erlendhg
Hi there.

Just wanted to say Merry Christmas or Happy Christmas to everybody on Frihost now.
Here in Norway, Christmas Eve is on the 24th December, and it also the day we celebrate with christmas tree and presents.

I know that in UK, you celebrate on the 25th. I also wonder, when does most of you celebrate Christmas? On the 24th, the 25th or some other day?

I'm in the UK but have Spanish relatives. Over there, apparently gifts are traditionally not given until until Twelfth Night (5th Jan) when, according to the Christmas story, the three Kings/Magi/Wise Men arrived with their gifts.

Edit: Oh, and Merry Christmas! Smile

Somehow, not only for Christmas but all the long year through the joy that you give to others
is the joy that comes back to you. Merry Christmas! best wishes to all the members of frihost.

Merry Xmas to everyone. And a prosperous New Year. Have a feeling 2010 is going to be an awesome year for Frihost - the one that we will be reaching the 1-million posting mark in, and cause for many celebrations.

Oh, that's really interesting.
Here in Norway, we also celebrate 13th day of Christmas (called Holy Three Kings' day) by lighting candles that are divided in three, to represent the three wise men, and of course also the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. Even though this may sound like a Christian tradition, it is a common tradition here.

Here is a picture of the special candle. Don't know if anyone else has a tradition of using this?

I had a fantastic Christmas. Spent Christmas Eve with my family up in the mountains. Had a big get together with much lamb, ham, gravy, potatoes, and beer. Mmmmm, beer. Cool On Christmas Day I had a big turkey dinner with my fiancee's family.

I am hoping everybody here has a fantastic new year and that their web projects bring them much success! Happy New Year everyone. Very Happy

Hope you all had a good Christmas. In America we celebrate Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. The way that each day is celebrated varies from one family to another. In my family growing up, we always spent the evening of the 24th with my grandparents and my cousins. We all had a big meal and then exchanged gifts afterwards. On the morning of the 25th, we woke up and opened more gifts, then went on to visit more cousins and grandparents, and exchange more gifts. My partner's family usually opened the bulk of their presents on the evening of the 24th, and then spent Christmas day with aunts and cousins, exchanging gifts.

I think the only thing that is consistent for most families in America is that the kids wake up on Christmas day (the 25th) and find gifts under the tree.

In Norway Christmas is often celebrated at Christmas eve. In any case, in most Western societies the "holidays" include Christmas and New Years, so they run on Smile.

woah. this is so weird. i thought everyone celebrated christmas on the same day. guess not. i don't celebrate christmas though. i follow a separate religion other than Christianity or the religions that celebrate it.

Yes, I know - it is quite strange.

Now, after Christmas, did anyone get some nice presents? Smile

christmas went by really fast this year! ... it could be because last year I was still a college student and got a month off... and now I'm working full time and got 3 days off Smile

The Christmas of 2009 was one of the most different and unforgettable for me. To long time I didn't traveling this date, and for having this opportunity again, I can say I had a great Christmas with wonderful people.

Yes, I know.
I almost spent the whole Christmas working on a show the students on my school set up each year from the 1st of January. Actually, the show had 80th anniversary this year too.

It took a lot of work, but was really fun, and we got great critics from the newspapers.

thank you

The 25th in Canada too. I'm guessing it's on that day nearly everywhere.

However, I'm not as excited as I once was. People don't give as many gifts anymore now that I'm grown up. Grrrr...

Anyways, hope you all get lots of gifts and are giving them out too.
