Singing and lighting candles. We don't actually have a traditional advent wreath, but we like to mark the progress of time, the counting down to yule. My "wreath" is the top of last years yule tree, a felt rose and some bees wax candles. I like its simplicity.
Reading stories. The basket is filled with all our yule related books, placed in the kitchen for quick and easy access. A lot of them is written by Astrid Lindgren - an all year favourite. We simply love the one in the front; Nissen. And in english; The Tomten.
Baking. Crisp and spicy traditional brune kager. Um, love that scent! - I also made some of these peanut butter chocolate kiss cookies from Lisa, they were crazy good!!
Presents. And the best of all. The presents for the girls. Well, yes, a bit too early - but who could wait giving these?? Aren't they a couple of little darlings?!
Well, I'm not sure the sheep agree with me on that ...
