Today, the sun rose one minute earlier than yesterday.
School is now closed, Mariette is off work and we are sliding into the holiday mood. A lot of Swedes do not put up their Christmas trees until a day or two before Christmas. We have had ours up for a while along with our decorations.
Not going to be a white Christmas. In fact, it will be in the 40s and even sunny on the 24th. There is a lot of snow now in the middle of the country but not here on the coast.
Tomorrow is Lilla Julafton or Little Christmas Eve. It is sort of a pre-Christmas Eve. Swedes really milk the season for all it’s worth. And we are enjoying it immensely.
