  4. Quel plaisir de voir la reine toujours aussi charmante vêtue avec beaucoup de goût ; j'aime beaucoup la simplicité de son petit collier à deux rangs du même style que sa petite broche montés sur argent !

  6. As a previous commentor stated, the Queen always looks so well groomed and beautiful. Maxima, take note. No huge hats indoors, not leather skirts, large jewelry, mustardly colored outfits, just plain elegance, well groomed (includes the hair) and beautiful.

    1. But Queen Maxima is Queen Maxima with all her lumps and bumps, figuratively speaking.
      And she is adorable just like Queen Sonja.

  10. The candles should not be red. They should be three purple and one pink to denote the season of Advent.

    1. And some Catholic churches have a 5th white candle in the middle to light on Christmas Day.

    2. When I looked it up, the opinions were all over the place. Some sources say red, white, or a combination of the two, while some say all purple. Then not all use a wreath, opting for a more modern candle holder.

    4. Four purple, red or white candles are used in Norway, but purple is more traditionally.

    5. @Anon 9:13 We switch to four white on Christmas Day. I am Catholic. It just depends where you are, I guess.
