Now we have reached my absolute favorite season of the year. Starting with the first of advent and all activities/celebrations leading up to Christmas (and New years), the christmas lights (both those in the windows and outside around town) makes this season feel particularly cozy. We came back mid-December last year and celebrated Christmas here then too, but this year feels more special as we actually have a "lived-in" apartment. Last year during the holidays we tried to be out and about most of the time as we barely had any furniture, and no TV, Internet or music-playing capabilities.
At breakfast this morning we lit the first candle in the advent candle holder:
In the afternoon we celebrated first of advent with our families (of course I forgot to take pictures!!) here at our place and after they left we went into Old town to visit the Christmas market and eat dinner. It's always so nice to visit the Christmas market and I know it won't be the last time we go there during this Christmas season. 🙂
