Christmas has already started in Gothenburg. All the stores have already sort of jumped the gun when it comes to Christmas decorations, flowers and food for this festive season and all of the streets are covered in Christmas lightning.
As some of you already know there isn't really an English word that describes the Swedish word "fika" so very well. The closest one is "having coffee". So I will just go ahead and use the Swedish word. Today I had my first Christmas fika this year - coffee and a saffron bun! I wasn't really planning on getting into a Christmas mood until the 1st of December, but I guess I just couldn't wait :)
I hope you are having a great Saturday.
