Little Christmas Eve

Little Christmas Eve

Little Christmas Eve

My ancestry is predominantly Danish, and I’ve been trying to learn more about the culture so I can incorporate aspects of it in my life.  I feel strongly about heritage and family traditions and want to teach my children who they are and where their family comes from.

The Danes celebrate Little Christmas Eve (They call it “Lille Juleaften”) on December 23, in addition to the traditional Christmas holiday.  Lille Juleaften is a time to get together with family and friends, with the menu consisting of “risengrod” (rice boiled with milk and cinnamon) and “hvidtol” (malt beer).

I’m still trying to figure out what I want to do to celebrate, but I am feeling very inspired by these Scandinavian images.  I’m especially loving the red and white combination.

  1. Well, we are all thinking of our Danish heritage. Tonight mom and I went up to Steve and J’Lene Hansen’s and Steve showed us how to make Aebleskivers. So guess what we are all eating on Christmas Morning. Don’t be too late or you will miss them! LOL!
