Valentine's Day

In Swedish Valentine's Day is translated into All Hearts' Day. The history of celebrating Valentine's Day in Sweden is fairly new. We didn't start until the 1960s. The department store NK (The Nordic Company) began selling heart shaped jellies. According to Wikipedia, we didn't celebrate much at all until the 90s when the special day was introduced at the local high schools.

For me, this is the first time I decorate the house for Valentine's Day. For me, it's a great excuse to keep the red going for a little while longer before it's time for all my blue! It's been so much red everywhere for so long, I've almost forget that I actually live in a 'blue home' ☺

My three year old princess saw me decorate in red and asked: 
- Mamma, is it Christmas today? 
- No, not today, I replied. 
- Ah, so you are just decorating?!

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!!
