Pres. & Sis. Tew
Christmas at home in norway
Updated: Jan 12, 2019
Norway is filled with traditions at Christmas, or Jul in Norwegian. Stores close for five consecutive days so shopping needs to be done early. We spent the week here with groups of missionaries coming to the mission home on various days to enjoy the spirit of the season.
This is the sunrise, around 9 am, Christmas morning from our back yard. It was a beautiful day, sunny and 34 degrees F.
An after Christmas dinner walk down to the fjord with the Oslo district, Elders McCourt, Sargent, Steele, Sobotka, Garlick, Cribbs, Sisters Tew, Morris and Stocks.
