Horse restingYesterday we went to the yearly Christmas fair to get some feeling for december joy in the newly fallen snow.

Here are some pictures from the fair. Horses with slades went around with children and families, I bought newly baked tunnbröd (thin bread) and some Christmas gifts for the family. There were snow, glögg, candles, a great exhibition of Christmas tree carpets made by schools and crafting people.

Here is a fire from one of the little cottages in the fair ground Gammlia:

Cozy warmth
