First of Advent 2015

Time flies sometimes…. This is one of those times, waiting for Christmas. The season starts off small with decorated stores and windows, but from this weekend and onwards it goes fast, too fast 😊

Every town has put up lights and Christmas trees, by Sunday ready to turn the lights on. And so am I!!

  

Normally these electric advent candleholders have seven lights, but now they can be found with any number of lights. The first was made in Sweden 1934, and year 1937 about 3000 were sold, 1938 about 6000 (according to Wikipedia), and except form the Second World War years I think more and more have been sold. Now you can find them in almost every Swedish home, and in many other countries as well 😊

I’ve also read that the seven lights originally comes from the Jewish Menorah.
