I love to watch movies during Christmas! Here are some of my favorites:

From All of Us to All of You

From_All_of_Us_to_All_of_You_Tinkerbell

No Christmas without Jiminy Cricket, Mickey Mouse, Tinkerbell and the rest of our friends from Disney in this animated Christmas special from 1958. It’s a tradition to watch it every year before we get ready for dinner.

Harry Potter movies

We used to go to the cinema and watch the new Harry Potter movie every year around Christmas so they are Christmas movies to me and I like to watch them every year. I love the Harry Potter books and the movies are really good too.

Chronicles of Narnia movies

As with the Harry Potter movies we used to go to the cinema and watch the new Narnia movie every year around Christmas so they are Christmas movies to me and I like to watch them every year. The story of Narnia has always been special to me cause I’ve always loved the books and I think the movies are so good. I used to watch the old BBC-produced TV serie Chronicles of Narnia every year before the movies came. 

Home Alone 1 and 2

Two of my favorite Christmas movies since I was little and I still watch them every year.

A Christmas Carol

" DISNEY'S A CHRISTMAS CAROL "-FILM FRAMES

I love this Charles Dickens story and this movie is great. I used to watch Mickey’s Christmas Carol from 1983 on TV in Christmas when I was younger, but they don’t sent it every year.

There are so many things I wish I had that I would like to get for Christmas, four of my five picks are things I really need. Like the wool underwear because it’s so cold here during winter and it looks great. The ski jacket, pants and hiking boots not because I go skiing or hiking very often, though I want to, but because I can use them to stay warm while walking to work or at work when we’re outside and it’s cold. And the shoes because I need some good shoes for walks and exercise. I don’t really need the Wii U, but I would love to have one because there are so many games I want to play. Some of these things are a bit expensive so I think I’ll have to buy them for myself.

The Christmas holidays are here and these are some of the songs which get me in a holiday mood.

When You Wish Upon a Star: No Christmas without this song, it’s my absolute favorite Christmas song

Sonjas Sang til Julestjernen: This song is from a Norwegian TV movie which has been sent on the morning on the 24th of December for as long as I can remember

Julekveldsvisa: An old Norwegian Christmas song

Christmas at Hogwarts: We always went to watch the new Harry Potter movies around Christmas so they’ll always be Christmas movies to me and this song is from the first movie

En Stjerne Skinner i Natt: Another one of my favorite Norwegian Christmas songs

Happy Winter Veil!

I’m in Norway visiting my family for Christmas. It’s dark and rainy outside and I doubt we’ll get any snow. Christmas isn’t what it used to be, for so many reasons, one being I’ve grown up and two being we’re usually just two or three celebrating together on Christmas Eve. But I’m still looking forward to meeting the rest of the family even though we’re all celebrating in small groups as usual, and I can’t wait for the Christmas dinner and Disney on TV.

 

Musevisa

Tekst: Alf Prøysen

Når nettene blir lange og kulda setter inn
så sier vesle musemor til ungeflokken sin:
Hvis ingen går i fella, men passer seg for den,
skal alle sammen snart få feire jul igjen!

Heisan og Hopsan og fallerallera!
Om julekvelden da skal alle sammen være gla!
