My Christmas celebrations have been a mix of 3 different traditions:
1. In some places in Greenland it is tradition to have presents in the morning of Christmas Eve so my husband and I decided to have a present each for breakfast.
2. Me being Danish, we of course had a lot of our presents after dinner on Christmas Eve. Normally we would have our presents after dancing around the Christmas tree but we were only the 2 of us with a tiny (I think less that a foot high) Christmas tree so we skipped that part.
3. My husband being English, Santa came to fill our stockings overnight - He came quite late so I think we were some of the last on his list when he was on his way home to The North Pole.
I enjoy Christmas very much but have to say I missed my family as I enjoy Christmas even more when we are all together. Last years Christmas with all 16 of us celebrating in a farmhouse in Denmark was brilliant.
