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.

Happy Lucia day!

Published: Tuesday 2005-12-13.

Happy Lucia day! Now the winter is at its darkest, but soon the light will return. Lucia symbolises the return of light, that now it will not get any darker, now it turns around and it will soon be spring and summer!

Yesterday night I spent making “Lucia cats”, the traditional Swedish Lucia saffron bun. After some initial problems I have to say that the end result really was really good. To wake up on the Lucia morning and have gingerbread and saffron buns for breakfast, that has to be the best there is, and it helps cure the homesickness I often tend to feel on this day...

Jag såg en luciatablå redan igår kväll. I en mörk lokal ser man knappt ansiktsformen på Lucia, medan tärnornas ansikten blir upplysta av ljuset de håller i handen. Dock hade de varken stjärngossar, tomtar, pepparkaksgubbar eller något annat med sig. En tjej gav stämtoner på en blockflöjt, men i ungefär hälften av fallen tyckte jag att de började sjunga på en helt annan ton än hon spelat. Hela uppträdandet tog en dryg kvart, sedan väntade innebandymatch. (dock inte med Lucia!)

På bakfronten gjorde jag vörtbröd i fredags. Det blev lite degigt i mitten, men mycket smak, kanske väl kryddat. Jag hoppade över russin, de passar bättre i den sortens lussekatter som du bakat.
