Gingerbread house

Gingerbread is an important part of the preparations with the family & children who yearn for the big day. This little gingerbread house is almost too sweet to be eaten and a fun idea for the handy.

Important preparations for Christmas, for those who celebrate this feast. Baking is, regardless of celebrations, always a delight. Gingerbread was always the biggest event at home when the boys were small – as important as Christmas presents – almost.

Closing in

It’s approaching, closing in, soon here – it’s popping up everywhere & it’s hard to distance yourself, as it’s placed on the hottest locations in retail stores. Thanks & praise, it has not yet begun in restaurants & Cafes yet.

Yes, It’s about Christmas decorations & one of the best seasons of the year in my opinion, BUT not when it’s warm, sunny & beach weather – I just can’t get used to it.

Ginger bread baking, a strong tradition in Sweden – no Christmas without gingerbread, believe me.

It’s the preparations, it’s the smells, it’s moments with mulled & gingerbread, it’s the atmosphere – the whole feeling. And gingerbread houses, decorations & the family getting together in the evenings with the winter darkness outside.

Christmas sweets

All sorts of desserts, snack & goodies are probably prepared & ready to serve for Christmas. No matter whether it’s bought or self made – although I prefer homemade. I had a mother who were very good at cooking, baking & in general an all-rounder in the kitchen. I inherited NOT the smallest portion of this ability. Maybe unfair, perhaps but it is what it is. But enjoying delicacies is not bad either. Desserts of all kinds are preferred, but generally, sweets is something of a must on the Christmas table. I thought this theme would be suitable a day like this – enjoy! AND MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU,
