Warm light

I wanted to show you how the windows in Sweden looks like right now. I think that more than 75% of all windows have a star or an electric candlestick (it's the thing that looks like an upside down "v"). The whole city is full of light.

Every year, for about 15 years, we have walked out in the forest and made a fire, we just sit there and stare at the fire, drinking Glögg (almost like Gluwein) and talks. It's very very nice.

Re-using is necessary these days, so I'll post some old links - Cecilia Andrews - Angel Delgado - Karin Seufert.

Sure it´s one of the best things in this dark month to see lights everywhere... enjoy it very much...make me feel good...
I´m also dependent on fire in the woodburning stove and many candles in the windows every day... hope someone will enjoy my "lights" when they walk by out in the cold...and feel warm...

This looks definitely nicer than most windows in my neighborhood!:o) Is it the Swedish sense for style?

mansuetude said...

? (Let me think ? Oohh..)

1. nothing... really, it was an intuitive act, like walking into a room where people R so serious and you say outloud something "odd" (unrelated)to make laughter.

2. to fling a bit of pink color on the somber tone of the night, (?)

3. Actually, it is a bit of answer, now that I think of it, to what American's do sometimes at holidays--so much plastic overkill of Christmas stuff... opposed to your truly lovely light city.

4. danced around all morning to wild music and lost my mind (?) : ) ?

5. Moran made me say it (?)

6. I don't know! trust a word... that's all.

7. None of the above (all) Maybe.

p.s.

i forget sometimes that tone of voice (inflection) doesn't translate over the computer!

Mansuetude, if it weren't you that said it I wouldn't have asked what you meant :)
I think Morran made you say it.
I want to lose my mind while dancing!!

Same in Poland - loads of windows have stars and these electric candles , maybe it's where it came
to P. from :)

mansuetude said...

U R dancing, you just don't recognize it yet.
I hear the music, Moran hears... the whole (damn) symbolic world is happy (and YES, dancing) !

Camilla, I have been in Göteborg and Stockholm in December and always l o v e d the lights in the windows. From that year on, I put "upside-down v lights" (as you describe it) in a l l of my windows - as I saw it in Sweden. In the 90ties, it was already a practice in Germany, too, but ultimately people have started to prefer lights of all colours and some very ugly kind of window lights for christmas time. I sticked to the swedish candellights and will do that in the future, too:-))

I love the idea of walking into the forest in the dark night of the year and sitting by a bonfire drinking mulled wine. It seems both part of the dark winter but also paying tribute to it in the quiet, nighttime trees and also fighting against the dark with the warmth and light - both outside with the bright flames and inside with the warm spiciness. I can't write it so I make more sense than that but never mind. I thought perhaps you were also celebrating St. Lucia Day but I just looked it up and see that it's on Thursday. I hope you will have a lovely day then as well.
The lights in all the Swedish windows are beautiful.
Hello to Morran from Hazel Dog, we hope she's keeping warm.
