Norwegian Christmas Greetings

Norwegians might not have seen their friends for over a year

They want to show them how much they care

They will spend hours writing Christmas cards

Make it look beautiful

Put it into envelopes

Drive to their friends houses

Go up the front door stairs

…and leave the envelopes on the doorstep



Without ringing the doorbell

Without saying anything

They do not want to disturb

Norwegians politeness is about not disturbing others

Interactions are different

It does not mean that these people do not care about each other

Or that their are not good friends
