Glögg and Lucia

My cousin brought a lot of glögg from Sweden, yeah! These two are on my top list. Here in the States we can only buy the dark red ones without any alcohol, at Ikea or Plum Market, that I normally mix with some redwine. That’s aslo tasty, but theses two took it to another level! Warm glögg and lots of snow, amazing combo!

Normally by this time of the year we have our big Xmas tree up, but I decided that the little one in the basement is enough. And I will have my lumbar jack hubby to cut down a tree in his own forest in Sweden!

This furry blanket is actually a Xmas tree skirt (julgransmatta) and I have matchy blankets in the sofa. Old favorites from Restoration Hardware (in Sweden you can find similar ones at Newport) and I might pack up the tree skirt and one blanket for our Sweden trip… sometimes I wish I wouldn’t care so much about details like this, hehe :)

Also. Today it’s St Lucia’s day and I’ve been enjoying all Lucia posts on instagram. A tradition I miss every year. For you who don’t know, Lucia was a saint from Italy that came with candles in her hair to bright up the darkest day of the year. As a kid you dress up and sing, at every school and childcare centers etc. Click here if you want a peek! That’s what I will show my kids right know and give them some hot chocolate and ‘lusse buns’. Need to keep traditions alive!
