The first of Advent
So this day is 1:st of Advent, That means that I have to walk up all the stairs to the attic to bring down the big box of christmas ornaments. I'm not religious myself, but the whole christmas thingy is still- I think- a celebration for the kids.
So today I will light a candle. My son is going to have a treat of gingerbread. He will open another "hatchet [I'm not shure of the right English word] on his Christmas callendar. And I will take a sip or two of the customary "Glögg/Gluhewine" (even though I relly don't like it).
I like to think of this time of year in the sense that the old Vikings did. As a celebration for the oncoming spring and summer. But while wer'e here- just have some fun...
Happy holidays everyone!
