I’m finally getting ready for Christmas! Monika and I baked Christmas buns and cookies for six hours yesterday, and with my apartment decorated and filled with Christmas treats, everything is in order for tomorrow. (We celebrate Christmas Eve in Sweden and not so much Christmas Day.) Tomorrow, I’m going to a Nordics Christmas concert and then I’m having dinner with Monika’s and Willie’s family. Here are some pics from our baking session yesterday and from my very cozy and very Christmasy apartment:
Traditional Swedish saffron buns
Christmas chocolates from Vienna
When I flew back to DC with Lufthansa earlier this month, we all got a Christmas stocking as a present.
