Beauty of our nature

So I didn’t really take much of a pictures about the destination where I was at 7-9.6. but on our way home I took more than enough. These are taken inside the car so the quality ain’t so well but you get to see the glimpse of that glory what I witnessed on our way home. You can click the images to view them on a larger scale.

Enjoy guys!

My Christmas 2012

“I want to go and help with cutting that Christmas tree!”
“No you won’t mister!”

“I just stand here and look important while you do your work, okey?”

“Well hello sexy!”

This picture is one of the most traditional Finnish TV show at the Christmas morning. It’s called “Joulupukin Kuumalinja” wildly translated as “Santa Claus’ hotline” where little kids can call and talk to Santa. I’m still watching this every Christmas mornings.

Some Finns – including my family – has also tradition to go to cemetery to remember our past loved ones at Christmas eve with candles. It is really beautiful place when the whole cemetery kind of became this altar of thousands and thousands of candles.

And so that no one won’t have any cravings after this, here’s some of our traditional Christmas foods:

As many of these foods don’t have a good English word I’m gonna somehow translate them and tell you guys what’s in them.

Karelian pastys are this type of bread we usually eat with our Karelian stew or just by itself like a any normal bread. They are made from rye pastry and rice.

Christmas ham. Mmmmm

This dish is called Karelian hot pot, but I think stew is better. The ultimate right Karelian stew is made of two different meats: pork and beef meat, with lots of onion and other herbs. Delicious!

Liver casseroles and carrot casseroles are my favorite casseroles of the Christmas table. There are also potato and swede/rutabaga casseroles but I don’t really like them…

Got a hot chocolate mug from Santa ♥

That’s about it guys. Hopefully you enjoyed my Christmas through pictures!
