The first of December I always put out my lamps with candles next to the front door, and I have them burn day and night till Christmas Eve. They create a great athmosphere outside the house, and whenever we get home the burning candles welcome us back. Traditions like this make me happy, there are actually those small things in everyday life that count.
Yesterday late afternoon when I took this picture, I had the “blue light”, a beautiful light you’ll find in the southern part of Norway at this time of the year, but only on a clear day.
Now I have started to play my Christmas music, another dear tradition during this time of the year. Here is one favorite at the moment “Home for Christmas” with Maria Mena. Although it is well-known it is worth listening to over and over again. Enjoy!
