Lights In The Dark

I have to try out if I can share this music track from Facebook, it’s a new song by Paul Simon. "Getting Ready For Christmas Day" from the forthcoming album "So Beautiful Or So What" out Spring 2011.

In town on Tuesday, I took some photos of these shop windows filled with Christmas window decorations. In Sweden, in December, you will find almost every window decorated with Advent stars and/or electric candles in various kinds of holders. It gets dark very early in the afternoons now. (And up North, where they have the Midnight Sun in the summer, there is Polar Night in the winter.) So we take delight in all kinds of extra light that we can find…

Maybe one has to be logged into Facebook as well to be able to access the music link?

I want to see more pictures of your store windows, I love these!! Can you tell now by my comments on both your posts today that I adore shopping? How great to be able to window shop in Sweden! It is dark here by 5 P.M. now. I love the reflection of that building in the windows, too.

I wish I had not looked at this post. I feel melancholy for a Christmas in Sweden. It brought back so many memories.I love the christmas lights in Sweden.
