Decorations for the anti-christmas freak
As you might know from my earlier posts, I’m not the typical celebrator of Christmas. For several years I avoided it almost completely, but I have found my way to build up some traditions of my own that make sense to my (slightly complicated) world view.
I always loved the decorations and the Swedish Christmas food, but I have had a hard time understanding the consumption hysteria. And as you might have figured out, I’m not your typical good Christian. 😉
Regardless of that, I like decorating my home at this time of year to bring in some light and beautiful colors to a time which is quite dull and grey (before the snow comes).
So I spent my weekend making and putting up decorations for the home, baking some ginger bread (recipe to come) and making glögg. I also took the chance to put some winter protection for my trees and bushes out on the terrace and hang up some bird feeders. This witch has been staying busy, that’s for sure!
How far have you come with the decorations yourselves? I’m curious to hear if and how you celebrate this season.
On the 21st of December (the winter solstice) I’m doing my yearly ritual where I set up intentions for the coming year. I already have something in mind for that, but this year I’m keeping the celebrations private.
