“This is a real Danish tradition for Christmas Eve and is served as a first course. When the porridge is almost cooked you make a ceremony, with everyone watching, of dropping one blanched almond in the pot. Whom ever finds the almond in their bowl wins a small present (Chocolate Santa, marzipan figure whatever) The kids love looking for the almond and of course have to eat their porridge in order to find it - no cheating by stirring the poridge in the bowl”
