Happy New Year 2016!!!

I hope you've all had a very lovely time in the last couple of days.
Here we celebrate Christmas, and I got to spend some nice time with my family. I love this season. Everybody are happy and there are decorations and fun activities everywhere :D

Christmas Eve - we celebrate Christmas on the 24th of December here in Denmark - went very nicely. This year we didn't have any guests, so we were 'only' us 6 (father, mother, my 3 sisters, and me).
We usually eat roast duck stuffed with prunes and apples. As well as boiled potatoes, caramelized potatoes, gravy and pickled red cabbage. Its super yummy! *___*
After we eat we are too full for desert, so we spend some time singing Christmas carols and psalms while dancing around the Christmas tree. One of the songs we sing are a very funny one where we hold hands and run around the entire house for as long as we can (this way we are able to eat a bit of desert afterwards without bursting) XD'
For desert it is tradition to eat a special rice pudding with almonds called risalamande. Usually there is a whole almond in it, and whoever finds the whole almond will get a small extra gift for their efforts haha. This year we didn't put one in however, because it always turns into a huge competition and everybody ends up eating way too much and feeling uncomfortable. XD
So many people actually ends up having to go to the hospital because they've overeaten oO"
Christmas dinners can be scary;P

After desert we start opening our presents. In my family we get few but good presents. My parents (and grandparents) gifted me a 50mm Nikon lens that was on top of my wish list this year, so I was super happy. :D
I'll definitely use this lens to take lots of new pictures of my dollies in 2016 ;)

The days after Christmas Eve we always spend on MORE Christmas dinners with different parts of our family, which is why I've not been able to do much online for the time.
Christmas is about eating I guess ^^"

Now, the time for New Years' celebration is here. 2015 went by so quickly, I don't feel ready to start a new year. But maybe that is just an excuse because I don't want to have all the exams I have in January <_<"

I hope you all have a wonderful New Years Eve celebration and a good start on 2016!!! Please be careful if you plan to shoot fireworks like most people do here - you need those fingers and eyes guys!
I've baken a Key Lime Pie for tonight with my youngest sister - and I'm gonna eat a big piece and cry about it later >:P

My goals for 2016 will be up asap in January :D

See you guys next year! <3
