Christmas for us this year was in someways a quite quiet one. With most of Tom's family away, it was just us & Pia, plus an elderly couple who are old friends of the family. This also meant that I had my first experience of being the host this Christmas. We still upheld the tradition of going out after breakfast to cut the Christmas tree, then home for lunch, followed by decorating the tree, cake & coffee, dinner & presents.

Dinner was a traditional Danish Christmas dinner with a few little "aussie" twists. We had roast duck with stuffing (not prunes like is tradional), brown sauce, red cabbage, boiled potatoes & brown (caramel) potatoes. There was also the traditional ris a'lamanda with cherry sauce.
