Christmas Cards of 2015

Hyvää, ihanaa ja lämmintä Joulua kaikille! (In Finland we celebrate the Christmas in December 24th, the Christmas eve for some reason. The year I spent in Australia 1999-2000 I was nearly dying on Christmas eve - I was 8, my brother was 5, as my parents kept telling us that we'd need to wait ONE MORE DAY. Last year on the other hand I woke up late, went for a tuna sandwich with my best friend before we took a long stroll around Patong Beach (we were looking for a certain fabric store for her cosplay project - Frozen's Elsa which still hasn't seen the light of day) and ended up making rice porridge in the kitchen of my internship place around 4 in the afternoon with +30 weather :D)
But anyways, to the Christmas cards I sent out this year~
Most of these cards were sent from the Arctic Circle in the beginning of November/end of October
