In Norway, Christmas Eve is the time when presents are exchanged. The gifts are sometimes brought by Santa Claus (called 'Julenissen' in Norway).
As in Finland, a sheaf of wheat is often left out for the birds to eat over Christmas.
Children go carol singing and will dress up as characters from the Christmas Story, such as the Shepherds and Wise Men.
Another Norwegian Christmas tradition is to light a candle every night from Christmas Eve to New Year's Day.
The village of Kjollefjord is located on the northwestern part of the Nordkinn Peninsula, on the shore of a small fjord which empties into the larger Laksefjorden.
The views here are very beautiful at any time of year but during winter when the snow has fallen it takes on a whole new wintery, Christmassy look.
Merry Christmas to you all.
