It's not very often that we get a true "White Christmas" here in south-west Sweden, but this year we did. As you might remember, we also had quite a lot of snow during the first part of December this year (also unusual); but then it went away. The last couple of days it's been snowing a bit again, though; and today, on the morning of Christmas Eve, I woke up (not too early...) to these views, and temperatures well below zero (freezing point):
A bit later, I put on multiple layers of clothes and went out for a walk. Across the old cemetery nearby, down to the riverside for a bit, and then back up to the cemetery again. I think I was probably out for about an hour. Didn't really bother to keep track of time, as I knew I had the day to myself; with no appointments to keep except a Skype chat with my brother in the late afternoon.
All in all, I had a very relaxing Christmas Eve (the main day of Christmas celebrations here in Sweden). To all of you around the world who may still be waiting for Father Christmas or Santa Claus or Whoever to come and deliver presents in your stockings or under your tree or whatever is your tradition, I wish you
And if it is not white,
I hope it will at least be bright!
