Jule Tree

Massive amounts of snow, big fluffy snow. It's been quite wonderful. Tonight we headed out to get our Christmas tree, or Juletre as they say here. We went to a local garden/nursery, and they were ready for us with an outdoor fire, lots of festive lights, and a smultring (donut) stand selling donuts fresh out of the grease. Mmmmm...

We found ourselves a funny little tree and brought it home for decorating. I won't be able to tell my Norwegian friends what we've done – bringing your tree inside before 23.December is a serious violation of Norwegian Christmas customs.
