December 1

December already. I feel that I am making Christmas calender’s all the time. Perhaps because I didn´t post much this year, despite my intention to. Well, no time for complains, Christmas is a busy time, and I have to use my energy on the Nisser around me, to ensure nothing mysterious will happen in the house, or to the Christmas spirit. I will tell you all about how it turns out, hoping that no Nisse will change what I am writing. That type of Nisse is by the way called a “sætter-nisse”, in the days with type setting in lead, he mixed the types in the small boxes, when the typographer wasn´t looking. I suppose that knowing what I refere to, means having a certain age.

First thing to do is buying a calendar candle. I did that. Such an item is not easy to deal with, if bought too late, especially not the good quality candles that burns very slowly. It has to show the right date. Imagine all the creative ideas that comes to ones mind, when the candle haven´t been lit for 3 or 4 days. To fix this is a typical December job.

Nisser


Nisser is everywhere in December. Here is one of them, resting against a (candle) tree.
