Today we are lighting the first candle of four...
The Christmas countdown has begun!
Happy 1st of Advent☺
It was a rather hot day today as well. I preferred to decorate indoors with the air con going, than spending time outside. The air con was on for the most of the day. Once in a while I turned it off, but when the house heated up to +29°C (84.2°F), it was time to turn it on again!
Noticed the kids didn't want to spend too much time outdoors either. They only went out for a bit when I had to get some more Christmas stuff from my boxes outside.
Here in Australia it's custom to start decorating for Christmas on the first of December. Some even put the trees up. That's a little bit early for me. In our family we decorate it mid December. Back home, we used to decorate the Christmas tree on the night before Christmas Eve, but then on the other hand, us Swedes, we don't take the tree down until 20 days after Christmas... and the Aussies take it down just after the holiday. I prefer having the tree up for a long time and all the decor as well - I want to be able to enjoy my Christmas haven - for a long time! So we put the tree up quite early and take it down late - best of both worlds lol
Stay tuned for more Christmas posts!
