Today is the start of festivities for me! I love this time of year; family birthdays, friends birthdays, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Eve. I know that for some people this can also be a stressful time of year. But it really doesn’t have to! Decide what is right for you and what you want to partake in! You can set limits. Try instead and focus on the good and on the positive. Time for yourself, with family and friends- if you so wish!
I’ve mentioned on several occasion “Hygge”. This time of year- it’s all about that! To make your life nice and cozy. I’ve been looking at various lights- and IKEA is a great place for that. I’ve also found a website called
They have some beautiful lights for Christmas. I am tempted and some will definitely go on my wish list!
Lights for table, to have in the windows and a bundle of colourful bobbles. The culture and traditions in the Nordics are a true mix I have to be honest. I will do some research about the more important dates here such as 1st Sunday in December, 13 December and 24 December. What is so special about these dates? Also note that these are dates I recall from growing up in Sweden. Traditions are different in Denmark.
Anyway these items are on my wish list as I truly want to create “Hygge” around me as the darker and colder weather approaches.
I really recommend.
