Så tenner vi ett lys i dag …
Today we light one candle …
Καλή Ελευση & Καλό μήνα
Good Advent & Good Month
“Kali Elefsi” is not used much, but I love to use it!!!
I love the advent tradition, for the coming 3 Sundays many of us will light one more light, so finally we light 4 lights on the last Sunday before Christmas
The color should be lilac/purple so my red and white candles
up here might be wrong, – but it is from years ago …
For me it is the warmth of the flame that is “the thing”!
Mom and me went to
Volos is “our” city, on the mainland inside of Skiathos, at the bottom of the Pelion range, a bit less than 150.000 inhabitants.
A lovely city who is getting more and more famous for its Christmas decorations! This year the Flying Santa with the sledge and the reindeers was new,
very, very impressive!
I always take a morning walk in the fishing port where they are selling fresh fish from the boats / “Ta Kaiikia”. Mostly men buying! I saw one woman selling.
I have to go to the Noodle Bar when I am in Volos, to eat some not Greek food. Mom had a very fresh crispy salad with avocado and smoked salmon with a delicious lemon sauce while I had a Peking Duck, just fantastic!
My car had a service and the EU control, good feeling that the car is “fresh”!!!
We checed our eyes, getting new glasses, some shopping
(I found lilac candles at Tiger)
and then IKEA in Larissa we bought Jubla candles,
5.99 for 20. But they got it obly in white.
AND we got Swedish herring, marinated salmon,
cloudberrie, cranberries and much more.
We are ready for CHRISTMAS!!!
