December 4, 2011 9:01 PM

   

Today we celebrate the second Advent Sunday of four here in Sweden. So I thought it was a perfect day to visit a traditional old style Christmas market nearby. More specifically the Christmas market I visited was located at a big farm called Bubbetorps Farm, about 5 kilometers from where I live. Now of course I brought my camera, and I took A LOT OF photos! Lol!

Below are some of the photos I took at Bubbetorps Farm Old Style Christmas Market earlier today.
