Vinterlund: how Lund is preparing for cold and dark times

This weekend seems to be a beginning of a very important time in Sweden. Christmas is one of most important celebrations in the year and you will see that Swedes love their lights, stars and candles.

Last Friday around 4pm the christmas tree in the city center was officially lit up. Weekend was filled with christmas related markets in center and Kulturen. If you have swedish friends or live with swedish family you could see that many people bake cinnamon rolls, saffron buns and gingerbread cookies cause this Sunday the countdown to Christmas starts and from now on, each Sunday next of 4 candles will be lit!
