Since Swedes generally celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve many want to do something else today. Christmas Day is a big night for movie premieres and also a common party night.
Just enough snow to make a little snowman ⛄️
The weather gurus have said that we’re in for a green Christmas, so we better make the most of what little snow we have before it disappears…
At Sweden’s biggest amusement park Liseberg in Gothenburg there is a big Christmas fair in December every year.
Just made a “normal” bunt cake and spiced it with some cinnamon, cloves and ginger.
“Lussekatt och pepparkaka”
Saffronbun (the typical Swedish name actually is Lusse cat, and Lusse refers to Lucia the celebrations on the 13th of December) and gingerbread cookie.
The US election has been hot news here in Sweden since day one. I cannot remember that I’ve ever heard so much on TV, or heard so many Swedes voice their opinion, on this topic before. And now with the result…. this seems to be bigger news than Swedish politics has ever been. Weird!!
Of course I’m interested too, but it’s kind of more important to me than most people living here. It’s just weird that everything is about what might or might not happen in the US, Swedish news comes in second place (if there is time left).
Any way, guess it’s back to normal now 😉
