In Sweden we celebrate Christmas for three days, starting on December 24th. It is that day we eat all Christmas food like ham, porridge, sausage, pickled sill, salmon, cakes and much, much, much, much more. At three o’clock in the afternoon almost all persons in Sweden sit down in front of the TV to watch Donald Duck’s Christmas Show and then it is time to give Christmas presents to the children – and maybe even to the adults if they have been very nice during the year.
In my family, the morning December 24 begins by going to a local church to participate in the Christmas morning prayer. It is a very special service where we sing the psalms of Christmas, listen to the Christmas story of the birth of Jesus and then the children together build the Christmas crib/Nativity scene with all the characters. At the end of the service all are gather at the Christmas Crib, singing Silent Night together before we get the blessing and go home to drink morning coffee with gingerbread cakes and saffron buns.
I hope that a lot of the followers of this blog have received a Mosebacke Horse Sculpture for Christmas. Hope you enjoy it!
A really Merry Christmas from me and all the Mosebacke Horse Sculptures!
