Christmas Light Candle Decoration

Jul ljus dekoration

Advent markerar starten på Jul i Sverige och Advent nummer 1 är nu på söndag den 3e december. Vi tänder ett ljus på var och en av de fyra söndagarna fram till Jul, i speciella fyrkantiga kandelaber. Jag ska tända mina nu på söndagen.

Strax innan 1e Adventen hänger svenskarna ljus stjärnor av papper eller metal I fönster. Traditionen kom från Tyskland runt 1910.

Den här bilden visar en av min dekoration till Jul


Christmas light candle decoration

Advent marks the start of Christmas festivities in Sweden and the Advent number 1 is now on Sunday 3rd December. At home, Swedes light one candle on each of the four Sundays leading up to Christmas, in special four-pronged candelabra. I will light mine on the Sunday.

Just before the Advent the swedes hang luminous stars of paper or metal on the windows. The tradition came from Germany around 1910.

Thank you Jean! I love these traditions as November month is very dark in Sweden. It is wonderful with all theses lights in December.

Merci Jean! J'aime ces traditions car le mois de novembre est très sombre en Suède. C'est merveilleux avec toutes ces lumières en décembre.
