Estonian Christmas

Hello, my most amazing blog readers. Many months and blog posts later – it’s finally Christmas. It was here, it happened. For those of you who don’t celebrate Christmas, I hope you still had an amazing day. And for those who do, I hope it was as magical and incredible as it should be.

The older I get, the more I realise that Christmas isn’t about the presents at all, it’s about being together with your family. This is the time of the year I know that no matter what, I will be together with my family, no matter where we are based in the world.

In Estonia, Christmas is usually celebrated on the 24th – having Christmas dinner and then later Santa will bring the presents. Everyone has to recite a poem or sing or do something creative in order to redeem presents. I find it so cute when children prepare for all of this and get really excited and nervous to ‘perform’ to Santa Claus.

This is my first ever proper vegetarian Christmas meal! I had potatoes, sauerkraut, bean and beet patties, cheese wrap rolls, eggs with creamy filling and potato salad! And for dessert – ice cream. It was so delicious and I am currently feeling like I’m in a food coma.

I hope you’ve had the best time of your life. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year! I hope you achieve your dreams in 2017.
