30 Days of Lists | I get excited when

December 13, 2013 | One comment


 

December is here and with that the 30 Days of List project from Kam and Amy.

30-2-13

The things that excite me are the little things: When I see the first snow of the year, when the leaves on the trees turn red, when the first spring flowers bloom. Thunder and lightning. When the holiday season begins.

Today’s December favourite thing is Saint Lucia’s Day, which is celebrated on December 13. It’s one of the few saints day we celebrate in Scandinavia. Seeing the procession of white clothed girls headed by the Lucia – who wears a crown of candles – and the girls following her holding a single candle each while singing the traditional Lucia and Christmas carols is one of my absolute favourite moments of the year, and something I really miss living abroad.

Supplies used: paper background, December Daily date stamp by Ali Edwards, lace and photo frame from Katie Pertiet. Photo from Atmosphere.
