My long weekend has started and so far no injuries or diseases 🙂 🙂 🙂 The Epiphany is a holiday here in Sweden but I have no idea if it is like that anywhere else. We call it Thirteenth day of Yule and most people that got a yule tree still has it. It´s tradition to throw it out twenty days after Yule in this country when Knut has his Name day.
When people didn´t have especially much money they used to hang candy and perhaps apples in the yule tree and when twenty days had passed after Yule children were allowed to “rob” the tree from all that 🙂 So on Knut´s day many still have a little children’s party including a Yule tree plundering. But I guess that now days they get a little bag of candy when they go home after the party. Most trees doesn´t have many needles left on the branches by then 🙂 🙂 🙂
It´s snowing now and has done so since the night towards yesterday. I think we´ve gotten about two decimeters (around eight inches). I´ve been looking att different weather forecast sites and some say we´ll get over 0C (32F) and rain on Saturday and Sunday. Others say we we´ll get below 0C (32F) and lots of rain. I don´t know which is worst because they all say the temperatures will drop rather much after the rain. In any case the roads will be dangerously slippery and I´m not even sure that I´ll manage to drive up that little slope I have outside my cottage 🙂 🙂 🙂
It´s time to make a pot of tea, watch some tv and then take a nap 🙂 I´m so tired of the blue light we have here in the morning so I made all photos black and white today 🙂 Have a great day now!
