Countdown for Christmas has just started!

Despite Gothenburg has been already lighted by beautiful Christmas decorations for almost one month, the official countdown for the greatest holiday has just started.

Today is Advent Sunday, which is the fourth Sunday before the Christmas. This Sunday many people all over the world will light the first candle in the Advent candlestick, and each Sunday until Christmas another candle will be lighted, until all four will  be alight. Also Advent Sunday is the first day of the liturgical year in the Western Christian churches.

Also it’s a Season of gingerbread! Swedes have great thing named “pepparkakor” or gingerbread cookies, which are very delicious.
