While I was writing The Christmas Confection, I spent considerable time looking up Swedish holiday traditions, customs and recipes.
Oh, my goodness!
I think I wish I had some Swedish ancestors in my family tree!
The beautiful decorations, the delicious food, the ancient traditions are all so wonderful.
I mean, just look at this face!
From St. Lucia Day…
to Dala Horses…
to the cookies. Oh, the cookies. And pastries. And Swedish meatballs. And…
I think I better stop now.
But if you’d like to see more of the decorations, traditions, and recipes that helped inspire The Christmas Confection, visit my Pinterest Board.
