The First Sunday of Advent

Today is the First Sunday of Advent

Many traditions are linked to Christmas time in Norway

They are part of the local culture

While most of these traditions have religious roots,

Many Norwegians and foreigners who follow them

are non-believers or believers of other faiths

Many find these traditions enjoyable in these dark December days

It brings people together

Personally, I am not baptized

Most would call me an Atheist

Yet I enjoy the Norwegian Christmas traditions

And how it brings people together
