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.
