Happy New Year to you! As many, I hope that 2013 will be a year of renewed blogging for me. You never cease to amaze me with you many social media activities...how do you do it? I think NYE fireworks are a very nice tradition -- relatively rare in France.
Fireworks sound so exciting. I grew up where they were banned since the age of roughly age 5. I remember doing sparklers on our street and seeing snakes during July 4th.. But after that time, nothing.. It's sad to not know that and my heart just flutters hearing about it. Show More Summary
Happy New Year Renny & Diane :D Wishing both of you abundance of health and happiness always :D
[...] Setting off our own fireworks: Ever since my childhood, I remember we were allowed to stay up until pass midnight to see the fireworks. I also remember passing this tradition on to my children and the day before we would build a big ramp to shoot them off with snow and ice holding bottles for the rockets. Show More Summary
It’s time to open a new book with blank pages. The book – or blog in my case – I will call it “Opportunity”, and the first chapter is devoted to a Happy New Year Greeting. I could write about New Year’s Resolutions, New Year Greeting Cards, New Year’s Day Messages etc., but have decided [...]
Christmas or Yuletide and New Year are connected to very old traditions and important celebrations in Norway. Keep in mind we are on top of the northern hemisphere.

Oh I thought I remembered the Rakfisk from a previous post! I know the Aquavit too. Nice stuff! I think I would like this food. I am a bit of a funky fish nut. I love caviar and I like sushi, sashimi and Maaki. I get alot of freshwater fish here in our lakes and I love to cook them. I like the pretty plates. Show More Summary
I just LOVE your traditions, Renny, and how lovingly you share them. It's so sad to know that some people are losing theirs because of too much mobility. But traditions are what make the world go 'round, as you know!
I remember Aquavit. My norwegian friends brought it to me as a gift from Norway. I tried a shot, and almost passed out. lol. Great tradition you have here.
Renny...thank you for the hugs on International Women's Day yesterday :D Appreciate your gesture, have a great weekend.
Very well served! And yummy! I still remember the first time I ate rakfisk at a small party. When I took rakfisk from the buffet table, everyone was waiting for me to eat it and see my reaction. I think they were so surprised that I just ate and ate and ate. LOL
