Yesterday I brought my Italian parents-in-law to the Swedish Christmas Market here in Frankfurt. Mixture from cultures? Oh, yes!
I bought some GLÖGG, the Swedes drink warm wine with spices for Christmas. It’s like the Germans Glühwein but MUCH better. Don’t forget that I’m from Sweden. Then I bought some Swedish cheese, Grevé (yummy!!), and some candles and souvenirs/gifts for the children. Flavio thinks that Santa will come in an airplane this year. Why not? Everyone arrives to Frankfurt with the airplane…
Today is the first of Advent and it’s snowing here in Frankfurt. I’ll give you some photo evidence. It’s most for my sister, while she won’t believe it if she doesn’t see it. I didn’t lit my candle yet. I’m a little bit late with my traditions but I will light the candle and sing my Swedish Advent Songs during the day.
My husband comes home today. Can’t believe it! Our daughter is almost 2 months old now and he almost doesn’t know her. So December will be a real family month here at our place. Finally time to stay together!
