I was about to create a post with a different photo when it started snowing quite heavily, the ground turned completely white, and I was reminded of this one in my files. To me this is the ideal Danish Christmas scene: sitting outdoors by fire and enjoying mulled wine or any other warm drink. The house is in Klampenborg, a small and beautiful area north of Copenhagen.
The children and I have been waiting for and looking forward to this day. Today is when A finally finishes his workshop in Switzerland and will be back home tonight. He'll miss the Friday pizza but nothing is stopping us from making pizza again tomorrow. Have you got any plans this weekend? I haven't made any but I'd love to go to a Christmas market and just really breathe in the holiday spirit. There will definitely be some baking and I think it's time to watch a Christmas film like Love Actually (2003) or some other.
As I mentioned mulled wine earlier, it is also time to make my favourite non-alcoholic mulled wine recipe so the children can enjoy it too. How I love December!
