The days are finally getting longer. We may be heading into deep winter, but light is returning to the Northern hemisphere. This year I have been enormously homesick – yearning for a traditional Scandinavian jul with its baked goods, traditional singing, and blazing candles. While I have been too busy to do much baking myself (and singing is no fun on my own), I have kept candles going throughout the month. And now we turn the corner.
Glædelig jul – happy holidays – to you all. Here’s a bit of 1950s Danish jule-kitsch.
