Christmas tree party

Juletrefest i Røyskattvegen

Every year in our neighborhood there is a christmas tree party. We start by meeting up at one of the neighbors houses. There we hade some refreshments, grilled sausages, gløg and blåtår. 
Then we walked through the neighborhood with torches singing christmas songs. At the end of our destination some of the neighbors had sett up som christmas decorations including a nativity. 
One important tradition of a Norwegian christmas tree party is the holding of hands and walking around the christmas tree singing christmas song. Then at the and the children shout out calling for Santa. He usually comes and hands out smale bag of candy. 

I realy enjoy this tradition because it gives me a nice opportunity to gett to know the neighbors.
