If I understand things correctly it´s Halloween tomorrow. Since we really not celebrate that here and since they can´t decide what date it should be celebrated on it´s no big surprise that we seldome see any pumpkins in the stores over here. But today I finally found two and they were in so bad condition that it was no use buying them. They were small too, so even if one cut out a head on them, the candle inside would have to be so small that it would be impossible to see any light comming out from the pumpkin head. Well I am a gardener so I simply have tp grow some myself next year if I want some I think. Even if I don´t celebrate Halloween it can be nice to have a couple of shining pumpkin heads outside my entance door.
It´s not a good thing to be afraid of the dark and live out here near a bog :-) When the sun goes down all lights dissapere.
It´s real foggy here every night now, so it would give a prfect halloween feeling I think. Over here we have to wait until December thirteenth until we can celebrate anything. Then we celebrate Saint Lucia. Strange really that we do that since we mostly are Lutheran protestants. She is the only saint we celebrate at all. This year it´s on a Sunday so then I can get up early to see Lucia, all the mades, gnomes, gingerbread men and Saint Stefanus sing all their songs on tv. Then I´ll probably have some gingerbreads, suffron bunns and Julmust. I love when Lucia is on a weekend :-)
Teodor is, like on the pictures below, sleeping in my favourite chair and my dogs in my bed keeping it warm and nice till I go to bed :-) Unfortunally they also fill my bed with sand and other things they have in their fur :-) :-)
Now it´s time for some gingerbreads and some hot tea :-)
Have a great day now!
