What it is? Well, Lucia should be enjoyed more than explained, and this video can explain it much better than I do. Enjoy! =D
Here's another video, with the most common Lucia song. =D
|This is an "adventsljusstake" - an electric candle contraption found in|
virtually every house and workplace in Sweden during December.
We don't decorate the houses with lights as much as people in the US,
but the advent lights is a big deal. Most of the country is really dark in winter.
|The four Sundays before Christmas Eve, many people use one of these.|
You light one candle each Sunday. =)
|The lit star is also a tradition. They're usually made|
of straw or paper, and spread a beautiful light. =)
|I remember the second guy from the left. I think I need|
to watch this show again and see if I still like it. =)
|David Tennant as Doctor Who|
|David Morrissey (The|
Governor from Walking
Dead) in Doctor Who.
|Here you can see my plywood displays and the large banner.|
|The "small" banners are quite large. I was worried they wouldn't stand up to outside |
use since they're fairly cheap, but I've subjected them to both wind and rain.
I'll wear them out eventually, but for $8 (if you can catch a sale) it's not a big deal.
|It was chilly in the mornings, but nice once the sun came out. |
In the future I think I'll prefer indoors events in November.
Alternately, I need to learn to bring more clothes. LOL!
|I was supposed to share the booth with two other writers, but Saturday I had |
more room than I could fill. I did get a tent-roomie on Sunday:
Patricia Helms with her lovely book with recipes and ideas for the home.
I don't think it's available on Amazon yet, so I can't link to it. =(
|I made some wonderful new friends. This is Elizabeth Olancin who presented |
her children's book One Inch at a Time and Through my Angel's Eyes.
To the right is Sarah Elle Emm who brought YA fantasy novels
Prismatic and Opalescent. Click on the links and check them out! =D
|Me, looking cold. LOL! I had a Happy Bunny fleece hoodie,|
but that didn't seem appropriate attire for photos, haha.
|This is Trouper. He made my weekend! The poor guy |
was hit in the head by a mean man when he was a puppy.
Are baby raccoons puppies? Cubs? Anyway, someone
hit him in the head with a golf club and now he is blind and has no
sense of smell. How can someone do that to another living being?
Luckily Trouper was rescued, and now he gets to go with his human
to advocate respect for animals. He was definitely popular.
|I got to hold raccoon paw! Please check out Trouper's website!|
