Christmas is a festive season – no matter how humble the decoration.
(Here are some creative ones I found at the Botanical Gardens in Stockholm recently.)
A pile of fir branches decorated with merry red apples that match cheeks rosy from the cold is a wonderful sight.
Imagination can weave peppercorns into a bauble for the tree…
… While spicy oranges spread fragrance and joy.
But perhaps the most festive decorations of all are the ones created by nature herself:
A lovely snowflake, the tinkling laugh of a child, an icy tree lit up by the sun so that it glitters
To remind us of the fleeting magic of the moment.
Christmas Eve is the big day for those of us living in Sweden. I wish you all much love and wonder.
Love came down at Christmas,
Love all lovely, Love Divine;
Love was born at Christmas;
Star and angels gave the sign.
