It is indeed Pultost, not Bultost, and it might be a collesterum cheese
since it is based on the first milkings.
As for Christmas, rest assured that we're not even close. (Although we did
celebrate a Norwegian Christmas in July once)
Recipes are a marvelous way of opening doors to remembering and I found
that the associations with those recipes make it much more alive (if not
more interesting) as they are being remembered, discussed, and often
debated within our family. As in the Kjelost, that we now are agreed is a
pudding and not a cheese.
I started to gather together, as a Christmas present, recipes that
might/were used in our families, concentrating on the Norwegian ones, for
my wife. I ended up with a huge book that had to be printed for Christmas
VERY unedited. Now I work on finishing it up and checking with family
members on different items, a few of which were mentioned but not
defined. So far I'm almost finished the Beverages (need a recipe for
homebrew? just kidding, just kidding) and closing in on the Cheese section.
Thank you for all your help and interest.
