Tredje Advent

Today is tredje advent, or the third Sunday of Advent. Advent means "coming" and is made up of four Sundays that lead up to Christmas and the birth of baby Jesus. Advent is all about waiting for Jesus to arrive, and using the candles to count down to Christmas.
In case you hadn't noticed, I'm one of those radical people who think Christmas has something to do with religion.

And it's also a nice tradition to sit down, light the candles and drink a cup of tea. It's really dark here in Sweden at this time of year, as daylight starts at 8.30 and ends at 15.30.

Three out of four.
