Easter holidays in Norway are a big thing, but not for religious reasons (the research from two years ago said that only one third of the population believed in God), but more for practical reason.
Christmas time in Oslo, as in most European cities, begins in early December with city decorations, lights and Christmas fairs (Julemarked).
What does Christmas mean for you? This was the title of a chapter in my Norwegian language book and there were some very interesting thoughts about that. The usual answers were: family, Christmas tree, presents, snow….I say food. And stress 🙂
