Almost done with my packing. Tonight I’m taking two of the people I love the most, my sister and my boyfriend, to our cabin for a few days of Christmas!
In Sweden Halloween is not a very big thing. They sell a few pumpkins in the store for decoration, and there might be a few kids doing Trick or Treat, but not much more than that. The next big holiday here is Christmas and we are excited!
We all work hard and could use a bit of relaxation. We all love Christmas. No one else is on the same level as we are yet, so we thought, ‘Why not go away for a couple of days’. And now it’s all in for Christmas. (Don’t worry, we will not go with all this until December. It will be packed down in boxes for a month or two after this. We just want a pre-taste.)
Tomorrow we will go to a big discount store, a few hours by car from the cabin. I think everyone in Sweden knows about this place, and people go there from all over the country. We will see if we can find some things for M’s appartment (since I’m pretty much moving in one step at the time) and if we find some Christmas gifts we will purchase them now.
If we find some gifts we will wrap them tomorrow night, watch a Christmas movie, eat Christmas inspired snacks, play the Christmas gift game and just have a cozy time.
Have you started thinking about Christmas yet?
