Norwegian Christmas Eve

On Christmas Eve we were invited to the home of the Norwegian students for a ‘traditional’ Norwegian Christmas celebration.  It was a fabulous time – it was amazing to see how many people the students have built friendships with over the last few months.  It is fantastic having them in Niksic and they are a credit to their families, school and country.

I almost ruined the whole night by accidentally dropping an almond in the porridge – part of the fun with eating the porridge is that one person gets an almond and they try and keep it in their mouth till the end of the meal – but my foolishness added a second almond to proceedings.  The porridge itself was interesting with cinnamon and meat.  I had a great night.  Thanks guys!
