Christmas Is A Comin'

Christmas is just around the corner and though we have not gotten any real snow here in Karlskrona in Sweden yet, the holiday spirit sure has arrived.

Today we celebrate Advent third, which means we light candle number three of four in our Advent candle sticks.

This Tuesday we celebrate Lucia's day, which means we watch and listen to Lucia and her followers sing Christmas carols. Below is a video I recorded a few years ago of a typical Swedish Lucia parade.



Another tradition on Lucia's day is to eat lots of yummy Lucia buns.

This year's freshly baked Lucia buns made by my sister, so good!!!

To help me count down the days until Christmas Eve I use my chocolate Advent calendar, a Christmas tradition I never get too old for. ;p

Christmas Is A Coming
Thirteen more chocolatey days to go!

Diva, my sister´s doggy (11 years old), never gets to old to keep an eye out for Santa. ;)

Now all we need is some snow to go along with this year's Christmas. Happy Holidays everyone!

I have written more about how we celebrate Christmas in Sweden over at -->Christmas In Sweden.
