So last night was the 1st Of Advent, meaning it’s only four Sundays til Christmas. Each Sunday we light one more candle to count down and have some mulled wine & gingerbreads. To me it’s the start of the Christmas season. I have also hung a star in the window like most Swedish people do. I buy the mulled wine from IKEA, but you can make it by yourself too, something I have not tried yet. A craze started in Sweden a few years ago by serving Blue Vein Cheese on Gingerbreads, and although it doesn’t sound like it would go, it is divine! It’s not the same having Christmas in summer time, but this year has been a very cold start to the summer season, so it almost works. Happy 1st of Advent!
