it’s the night before christmas eve, and there are only a few hours left before the  holiday craziness is in full swing. i must admit, though, that tonight i’m feeling a bit like a child about the burst from excitement! as i may have said before, the big celebration in sweden happens on christmas eve, so tomorrow feels like christmas day for me… and that makes tonight christmas eve!! in the morning, we’ll open our stocking gifts & then we’ll begin a long day filled with swedish traditions, candles everywhere, family visits, and stuffing our faces. can’t wait! and then, tomorrow night it’s christmas eve all over again because (well it IS actually christmas eve) we will celebrate the american way, with gifts from santa in the morning, on the traditional celebration day in the states… christmas day (sunday). it is absolutely amazing to be able to celebrate christmas in 2 ways! but, before all the busy fun begins, tonight, my love & i are taking it easy, just enjoying ourselves. i’m calling it christmas coziness…

 wishing you a very merry christmas full of joy & peace!
