    Kubb on Christmas, that sounds a bit, hmm, crazy?? But also kind of tempting. Might have to try 🤔

    @... that's the whole point! And you really should! Imagine just how cozy it'll be to go inside and have a warm cup of coffe/tea/chocolate with the Christmas-breakfast afterwards!

    I knew about the Christmas tradition of watching “Kalle Anka och hans vänner”, but I didn't know about the BingoLotto. Seems like I have to really experience the Swedish Christmas traditions.

    Though, as I'm spending Christmas in my home country, Colombia, I will share with you one tradition we have here that's called "Novenas". The Novenas start 9 days before Christmas, and every day we gather together with friends and family until the 24th. The novena consists of prayers to Joseph, Mary, and the little baby Jesus, in addition to daily reflections and meditations.  Also, we sing Christmas carols (villancicos), and eat some buñuelos (a fried cheesy dough fritter) with natilla (custard-like dessert).

    The fun part nowadays is also that after the novena we end up the night with a party, so can you imagine 9 days of partying? 🤭🎉

    @... haha you haven't missed that much, it's basically just a big lottery :)

    Wow! 9 days of celebration sounds amazing, lots of time to spend with family and friends!
