God Jul

The Christmas season in Sweden has been a great experience. My girlfriend has joined me after several months apart. Here are the few things that I/we got up to.

Work Christmas Party -
Was fortunate? enough to attend the work Christmas party, along with about 2000 others from various companies in a show with song and dance - think ABBA and Eurovision...

Glögg and Pepparkakor - a Swedish mulled wine with thin gingerbread biscuits. Here we are having some at one of the Christmas markets.

Handel's Messiah in Storkyrkan - we attended the playing of this oratorio in the oldest church in Gamla Stan on a Sunday afternoon.

Christmas Market in Gamla Stan - This one is in the middle of Gamla Stan, plenty of food, toys and products in these red boxes.

Saint Lucia's Day - is celebrated in Sweden on the 13th of December. An evening was organised for those of us on assignment in Sweden. We were treated to a traditional smörgåsbord and a choir singing Christmas carols. View video of the choir.

God Jul!
