Lifecruisers xmas preparations
Jenny Nyström 1908

It’s a very old tradition to boil rice pudding for xmas in Sweden and they even put it outside for both Santa and the elfs to eat during Christmas. In reality it’s said that it very often were animals that ate it. Maybe a fox.

Mr Lifecruiser is childish fond of rice pudding and he is almost religious about how to cook it. You might even call him a rice pudding gourmet ;-) it will be eaten with a lot of cinnamon and some sugar with milk on top of that.

We won’t boil ours until maybe the day before Christmas Eve and I’m not sure when we’re going to prepare other food since we’re away on Christmas Eve. We’ll have our own xmas after that.

The xmas preparations is going on:

- Cleaning the apartment
- Wrapping the xmas gifts
- Preparing some of the food
- Sending xmas wishes
- Making xmas phone calls*)

We’ll be around during the holiday, not as much as usually, but around. In case you aren’t we want to wish you all dear blog friends:

Merry Christmas & A Hilarious Happy New Year!
(God Jul & Ett festligt Gott Nytt Ã…r!)

*) If you know some one that’s spending Christmas alone, please take the time to make at least one phone call to them on Christmas Eve/Day. Christmas is a very diffult time for the ones that’s alone and just one little phone call can mean a big difference showing them that they aren’t totally forgotten by the whole world…

    Good point, LC. Thanks for mentioning about calling someone who is alone at Christmas.

    I’m afraid to say I’m not a big fan of rice pudding but I hope you enjoy it and not the fox!

    I’m just catching up on your blog, but from your note on busy preparations above, it sounds like maybe you are feeling a little better (or just sick of complaining about it! ha ha). I hope it’s the former!

    Merry Christmas to you and Mr. Lifecruiser.

    God Bless~

    Lifecruiser: I hardly dare to say it, but it seems like I may be a bit better :-) But I am sick and tired of being sick and have to complain too!!! *lol* I wish you and your family the same ICL :-)

    I had forgotten about the people who will be spending Christmas alone. I’ll start making prank phone calls right away, ha,ha..

    Lifecruiser: Thanks…. Oh, I’m sure you make them very Happy and not at all Blue then :-)

    Good to know Mr Lifecruiser will have his rice pudding this year too – traditions like ‘same procedures as last year’ is important to men you know!
    From all of me to all of you: Marry Christmas to you and your family:-)

    Lifecruiser: Yes, as the traditions seem to disappear more and more for every year, I think it’s very important to maintain them.

    Merry Christmas & A Hilarious Happy New Year!
