Norwegian Christianity

So....I was home by myself again this weekend. Gaute took the kids to the cabin again so that I could have the house to myself and study. I really did get a lot done - hopefully it will pay off when I have my final on wednesday (yes, it is another 6 hour final with essay questions...)

We've had two long weekends in a row here. Norway is very religious (ahemm...) so they have days off for all of the big religious holidays, like Ascension Day and the day after Ascension Day (last weekend) and Pentecost Sunday - and Pentecost Monday, of course (this weekend). I'm not complaining, but I think the religious significance is lost on most people. The kids in school LOVE it! Unfortunately, the college students still have to study for their finals, though...

Anyway, everyone is home now - except for Espen who is at a Lyn game. I'm taking a few hours break to eat dinner and say hi to my family. I might just get back into study mode after they go to bed, though. I would hate to get a bad grade... Plus, I think what I'm studying is really interesting. It's Religious Studies, which I think is fascinating. Now I finally understand what people have been talking about all of these years....
