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,
