Christmas Eve

We began the day sleeping in. For breakfast, we made a huge pot of risgrøt, a rice porridge made with a lot of milk. Weird stuff, twice as much milk as grain, cooked for a long time until it's thick and yummy. Good with sugar or with salt.

We mixed in an almond. Tradition holds that whoever gets the almond gets a holiday wish. I got the almond. Dinner was a smoked boneless Christmas ham. We opened presents then set out cookies and milk for Santa and broccoli for the reindeer. In the morning, Julenissen comes!
