Day 19: Merry Swedish Christmas Eve

24 Dec 2017 gatherings

In Sweden, we celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve. It’s an entire day filled with food, music, family, and traditions. And, this year, is a “Sweden year” for me + Lina; so we’ve taken the train down to Norrköping to spend the weekend with Lina’s parents, siblings, nieces/nephews, cousins, and more.

Although I did get home from work just in time to live stream Santa arriving in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade and then watch A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving (I love you, YouTube). However, turkey day has most definitely been on my mind all day long. And, I must say that I’ve been thinking a lot of all of the things for which I am grateful. YouRead More
