In Sweden, the Christmas season starts with the first Advent Sunday, and that's also when most people start putting up decorations - especially candlesticks and window stars. December is a very dark month here, so the extra lights are welcome.
I spent most of Friday putting up my window decorations, plus changing some table cloths and runners etc.
To the left in the collage above is the window in my study; to the right the living room.
On Saturday morning, somewhat to my surprise, I woke up to the first snowfall of the year.
I went out for a walk a bit later, but kept it very short. For one thing, it's tricky to know in some places if there is ice hidden under the freshly fallen snow or not...
And when I woke up today, the first Amaryllis flower in the kitchen window had sprung open for 1st Advent Sunday.
