Christmastree 2017

Christmas trees in different sizes are for sale around the streets, big and small, there are trees for everyone’s taste. Some years ago, I posted this photo, showing how the selection might be later in December.

Christmas tree special

Most Danish towns buy their own Christmas tree. It happens that the citizens doesn’t quite like the choice, like it happened in this city.

Gløg and “apple slices”. Usually server together and only at Christmas time, you´ll never find it at a restaurant any other time of the year. (Probably because people had too much of it in December. 🙂  ) We went to a little restaurant in the wood, to enjoy the taste of Christmas.

The sky has disappeared today.

Luckily the red letterbox is still here, to brighten up the day a bit.

First of December, and the traditionel calender candle is ready to count the days for us. I wrote a bit about this last  year : https://my2008blog.wordpress.com/2009/12/02/counting-the-days/
It is very cold these days, and the windows are decorated with ice pattern in the morning. Nicely done.

Sunday in town

After a week occupied with taking care of my influenza sick family members, I went to town, hoping that I would meet a Santa Lucia procession somewhere.

 Today, sunday 13 december, most shops were extraordinary open in an attempt to increase their sale. As I expected, some of them had invited Santa Lucia and her procession to come, surely knowing about the side effect of her presence . Beside the photos taken for you, I came home with a few new kitchen gadgets that I hadn´t written at my shopping list.

Outside the shop, the christmas trees are being sold and wrapped into a net. About 3 pm, darkness is just around the corner.

17 pm. and we are ready to go to sleep. Luckily, the shortest day is near, and we can start looking for spring…

December is here.
