December thoughts

I love candles
they burn so quietly
So peacefully
giving warmth and light

Every morning, afternoon and night
we burn several candles
This time of the year we only have daylight
a couple of hours in the middle of the day
if it's a clear day.
We stay inside and burn our candles
hibernating in the dark season.

The most eaten fruit of the season in Norway
is clementines
Not from here of course,
This one is a sweet treasure from Spain.
The smell of clementines
is the smell of Christmas!
In Norway it was common to clean your entire house
before Christmas.
This is not such a common tradition amongst my generation
Why should we do that, when no one can see a thing?
One trick is to burn Christmas incense
To make your house smell nice

And if you really want it to smell like you've actually cleaned ceiling and walls, then you can fill a little saucer with pine-sol and hide it behind a curtain in your living room, I'm just saying...

Hi Anette!
I like candles, too.
The first one is like mine.
but your candle holder is cuter than mine!
I think it's really cold in your country.
Is it snow often?

Thank you for reminding me that I should shut up and quit complaining that the sunrise here is close to 8AM and sunset is about 4PM!
