  1. Great answers on your questionnaire! I have been enjoying going through everyone's questionnaires and having a great time getting to know everyone. I can't wait for this swap to get underway and find out who I have.

  2. Neat questionnaire--fun to read you answers and see how Christmas is for you! :o)

  3. I enjoyed learning about julebukk, the Yule Goat! From Wikipedia, the prank that used to be popular in older Scandinavian society sounds really fun and hilarious.

  4. Thanks so much for sharing Hege! I love that you would be a Nisse ornament :) I love little fairy folk like that! Hope you're enjoying the swap so far and thanks for filling out your questionnaire!
