Christmas in Norway – a Tiny Book review

Christmas in Norway is a fact/history book written by Ørnulf Hodne. It was first published in 2007.

The book is about old and new traditions in Norway; how we’ve prepared and celebrated this holiday through the times. Most of the traditions mentioned are from the 1800s, with some input from as far back as mid-1500s. Unfortunately the documentation on these things haven’t been the best.

This book is really, really…cozy. We Norwegians love everything cozy, and basically most things can be (it’s basically the same as the danish hygge, which is a bit more internationally known). Reading this book gave me Christmas spirit all the way through! I learned a lot about some outdated traditions, and I loved picturing all these people living in a different time coming together to celebrate my favorite holiday.

This is my last book review before Christmas, so I hope you all have a Merry Christmas!
