Since it's dark at 3pm, the afternoon/evenings are very long but it's by this time of year the countries up North becomes ultra cosy in a way hard to describe when not being here in person.
In the evenings now we drink Swedish Glögg (like gluwine) with Pepparkaka (gingerbread) or sweet Saffron buns or bread with raisins, crack nuts and enjoy Christmas old style music and real candles everywhere. In Sweden we also have a wonderful tradition of putting big stars up in every single window of the house (or apartment, chalet or whatever you have).
It's truly magic, even as a grown up, I can feel this loving feeling spread all over my body. We have to let Christmas be like this for the small ones. I love it to the fullest.
