Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

The thirteenth of December probably is the day of the year when I most miss Swedish traditions. Sure, it is possible to find a Lucia celebration also in this country, but you have to look a bit more, they are not as omnipresent as they are in Sweden. And I wasn’t particularly impressed with the SVT Lucia either, the last few years they seem to have done all they can to find as untraditional celebrations as possible, which is a bit sad for those of us who prefer the more traditional songs.

Okay, so the Swedish Church has four Lucia celebrations tonight, but then you need to buy tickets, and I have of course not been foresighted enough to buy any. Oh well, I can of course always silently hum on the Lucia song and Staffan var en stalledräng this year too.

But then I arrived at worked and found that a collegue had made “lussekatter”. Wonderful! Espen, you have saved Lucia!
