Picking Christmas tree in Sørum

 We are so fortunate that we have access to fresh X-mas trees.

In Sørum - a feeling of X-mas

My uncle has married a woman with forest. Almost every year we visit them to pick Christmas trees. It's a really nice tradition while we at the same time thin out the forest, where needed. This time it was a fantastic visual experience as well. A bit magical. All the white stuff is not snow, but white frost. It was beautiful.

True to tradition we got tasty, home made and roasted black pudding, yummie. And dinner. And X-mas tree. Altogether a wonderful experience culinary, social and visual. Thanks to Aunt and Uncle.
