sl week 5; lights

I have totally forgotten that we are into a new week, so I’m a bit  late with my entry this week.

For me as a Swede is the our Christmas lights in every window around Sweden … is something very special. The for 4 weeks of Advent that leads up to Christmas and for 17 days after – every window in Sweden has a candle or a star (sometimes both), that goes for offices, hospitals, schools, hotels, restaurants, banks and all homes.

I’m not a Christmas fan, but I could never dream of not filling my windows with lights over during December and January.

to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.
