The days between Christmas and New Year's, that is.
I think these are my favorite days of the season.
I love them so much.
Christmas lingers on, even though it (Christmas) is really over.
But, in my book Christmas is going strong until New Year's Day.
It is so nice just hanging at home.
All the Christmas decorations are up.
You can just enjoy them for all it is worth.
It is still too early to "worry" about New Year's Eve. We are hosting this year's party (Peter and I are the seasoned hosts). But, FOR now one can just sit back and just "be".
Yesterday I activated my new iPhone 4 s.
I downloaded "Wordfeud", but I have yet to play it.
I have got to practice it a bit first.
Peter, Karolina and I enjoyed a Swedish Christmas dinner last night again.
It is SO good!
Oh yes, some of you Americans know how important "A Disney Christmas" is to most Swedes. You may know that the whole country of Sweden comes to a halt at 15:00 on Christmas Eve. Most people are watching "Kalle Anka" (Donald Duck) at that time. It is a true tradition.
BUT, I am more for another TV- tradition.
The tradition of the fairytale of Karl-Bertil Jonsson. Karl-Bertil is a a young boy in the late 1930's, early 40's. He is 14 years old and he works for the Royal Swedish Postal Service over his Christmas break. Karl-Bertil is very aware of the poor and unfortunate people that are suffering, and therefore he starts to "help" them celebrate a decent Christmas.
I love that fairytale. It is so beautiful, and it rings so true to me.
My sister Sara, got me the "Karl-Bertil Jonssons julafton" on DVD for me for me as a Christmas gift, so now I own it. Lucky me!!!
Karolina and I were watching it last night, and it almost brings tears to my eyes, that is how beautiful it is.
Anyway, Peter is off work all week long. Today we are heading to the movies. We are going to see "The girl with the dragon tattoo". The American version.
IT will be VERY interesting!!
Have a good one!!
