is the most important Family gathering in Norway.
After the Christmas Cakes, we buy the Christmas tree. The light you see, is from the vendors security reflexes, which almost everybody uses here in Norway.

In short, I picked up my son Niklas and his son (yes, my grandson) and all the xMas gifts in downtown Oslo, then went over to the other side of the city, to pick up presents, food and cakes at my borthers place and then pick up Ingelin and Solvi and drive back to Oslo south. Niklas ski-weekend before xMas ended up with a broken foot for him, so he walked on crutches. Then the ladies and I went to Church at 4 pm (we arrived at 4:05 pm). Not a single chair left open. Had a good time in church, then drove home to prepare the Christmas Dinner.
At 5:15 pm my mother, brother and old friend F, arrived. Then we thought everybody were present. But this time no. We got a surprise. A very pleasant one.
