Christmas in Norway ... so how do you [or if different the 'average' Norwegian] usually spend Christmas and the New Year?

Maybe you are different in that you choose soon to retire in Thailand. :)

Christmas Eve (24) most busy day. Also the day With most people in Church. Also put lights on Family graves (Graveyard a very nice sight in evening - getting dark at 16 afternoon). Then Family dinner in evening, menue differs from different parts of the country, but common that everyone agrees "Should not have EATEN THAT MUCH" :D , be smarter NeXT year. Then presents is opened ( evening 24). Rest Christmas Family visit each other or relax, or go for walks to get rid of the calories :oops:
Tried Christmas Thailand last year, really special eating Christmas dinner wearing only shorts :) so at the monent thinking Christmas Norwegian, New Years Eve, mai pen rai :D

Seasons greetings to all our members.

May your dreams come true ... and if they haven't may your contractor [by some miracle] come back and fix the problems. :( :) :D :lol:

Have a great 2015.

Merry Xmas to all the members for 2014/15.
Don't forget if you have children to go and get buffalo crap and throw it on the roof of the house so you can show the kids where Rudolf crapped as he was waiting for Santa to deliver the toys.
I recall in Australia, my ex-wife and I would go over to the Mess and come home at about 2200 hrs well and truly pickled and then it was out with the tool kit and assemble all the things that needed assembling and as soon as that was done I'd wake the 5 kids and watch them have a ball and play with them..... me being the biggest kid of all.
Off fishing on Koh Samet for the New Year, if I make it that long.
Anyway ho ho ho ho.

Merry Christmas to all
As I'm flying today, at the moment in DMK bound for KKC soon, I decided to amuse the flight crew and kids on the flight

Merry Christmas (belated) and a Happy New Year to all CTH members and readers.

A special thank you to all members who have kindly provided such valuable information, opinions and insights to the ups and downs of building Thailand. There's no way I would have had the courage to embark on such a project without CTH. In my experience the ups have definitely out weighed the downs, considering I'm not currently living in Thailand full time I feel very lucky.

Have a great year ahead. :D
