Here’s a small holiday card I put together…
To all of you out there – Happy Holidays! =D
(Present is below the image! ;D)
And before someone comments on it – I know it’s supposed to be joyeuses in plural, I was just having fun with it! ;D
I’ve noticed this little meme, or qestionnaire if you wish, travelling around the blog community. I thought it was interesting, so here’s my christmas traditions in a walnut shell! ;D This will probably be filled with wierd Swedish traditions that many of you have never heard of, but it’s a great opportunity to learn about other traditions – right? I love that sort of stuff! =D
1. Eggnog or hot chocolate?
Chocolate… But rather Glögg (Mulled wine?) ^^
2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree?
He’s an excellent gift wrapper! ^^
3. Colored lights on the tree/house or white?
WHITE for Pete’s sake!
4. Do you hang mistletoe?
Nah… I kiss Robbie in his sleep so he definitley can’t refuse me… ;D

In Sweden we open all our gifts the 24th in the evening. ^^ But usually we get one thing in the morning to play with during the day, while waiting for all the good stuff! ;D

In white and silver, preferraby with no santa figures… I don’t know why, but I just don’t like bright colors in my tree, hehe…

A little bit of both (so I don’t have to choose sides and risk hate mails! ;P)

22. Saddest Christmas song?
Merry Christmas to you… Or what ever it’s called… “Chestnuts roasting on on open fire… dum dum dum di dum…” It’s not really sad I guess, but it’s beautiful and sometimes when I’m alone and extremely nostalgic the water works starts, hehe. ^^;
