Christmas is time for treets. My wife gave me candy today. 🙂
In the candy is a small picture. It is the city arms of Copenhagen.
The tower in the middle is a symbol for Absalons castle. He was the founder of the city. The two small towers are the towers from the city wall. The waves symbolises Ã˜resund – the Sound between Denmark and Sweden.
When I was a child my mother learnt us a tradition. We had four candles and lit the first on the first sunday of advent, two on the next and so on.
My wife buys large candles, so we have all four of them lit all four sundays up to Christmas. As you see, they will probably not burn down before Christmas.
I suppose you have heard of “kravlenisser”. Nisser that are everywhere. I caught a couple in the cellar trying to hide when I unexpectedly entered the room.
The painting was bought on the scouts’ flea market for almost nothing. The houses are from Gudhjem, Bornholm. Denmarks easternmost island. (except from some small rocks off its coast).
According to the calendar winter has begun. Someone forgot telling nature here. Please don’t!
The children have their calendars with 24 windows, each with a little picture of things related to Christmas.
We got this for counting the very few days until the Grande Finale from our daughter and daughter-in-law.
-The numbers are almost invisible, but the chocolate is: Delicious!
Today we celebrate Christmas in Denmark.
The children almost can’t wait. I can’t wait to see their happy faces.
Merry Christmas to all my family, friends, fellow bloggers and frequent visitors.Â
May your guardian angel be with you and bring you joy and happiness for the coming year.
