"I dag er det 6. desember"

I'll have to admit, nowadays I really prefer "Jul p Mnetoppen" instead of preparing for my exams. Guess it's the child in me... Can't wait to get home and see the two last episodes with my sister (hopefully). I especially like the traditional, oldschool shows, the modern and fancy are not my favorites when it comes to this. I've decided to reward myself every evening before I go to bed, with today's episode of "Jul p Mnetoppen". The last days I've actually found out how much the December month mean to me.

To make a good start of it, I went to the city last Tuesday for the annual Christmas Tree lightning at Rockefeller Centre. Me, amongst half a million other people, watched the beautiful 74 foot (22,5 meter) Norwegian Spruce lit by 30 000 colored led lights. You may not believe me, but it was actually worth standing outside, alone, 4,5 hours to see this.Artists such as Josh Groban, Kylie Minogue, Annie Lennox, Jessica Simpson and Susan Boyle performed wonderful Christmas songs. I'm honestly not sure if it was the cold or their voices together with the tree that gave me goosebumps the entire evening. I'm pretty sure it was the songs. Wish I could have had someone there with me though, don't think I will get to see this again. Thank you New York for living up to my tradition of "julegrantenning".



The tree was crowned with a star consisting of 25,000 Swarovski crystals.


I found a clip on youtube similar to the one I taped. Since mine turned out upside down, I'll post this instead. It was pretty much the same view as I had, although I was much closer. Beautiful, right?
nsker alle en nydelig frjulstid!

Nydelig Johanne :-) Jeg tror du har ftt den beste julestemningen som er mulig f. Det er ikke s verst her heller, sn og kaldt, og vi har hengt opp julestjerne med lys i p kjkkenet. Idag har jeg pyntet med julestjerner (blomster) p jobben, s n kommer nok julestemingen her ogs.

Tenkte p deg p lrdag. Onkel Morten og jeg var i Stavanger og gikk forbi en butikk hvor de hadde Alexander Wang. Men fikk ikke tid til g innom :-) Vi ses til jul her hjemme. Og lykke til med eksamen! Klem
