Me and the Mr decided, long before we had children, to let Christmas Eve (the culmination of Christmas in Swedish households) be holy and free from stress. This meant that we would NOT go from parents to parents, divorced or not, as a rockband on tour. Christmas Eve would be spent at home in our home.
That is why we just returned home from the second Christmas gathering at my parents home. Santa was there a left off three gifts. I really had forgotten about to what level the children’s excitement can reach in the wait for Santa Claus… 🙂
So this year, we will spice it up with a new ingredient, to spend it with friends. So tomorrow will be about preparing food (no Swedish traditional Christmas food though) in my own stressfree way.
