  1. I am so sorry I missed your recent posts about these markets. We will have to go next year.

    I am a fan of all things Nordic and have visited Sweden and Denmark several times (Norway, Finland and Iceland are next on my list).

    It will be nice to visit the Scandinavian communities here in London next year, and not to have to fly to Skansen to buy more Tomte/Nisse to add to my decorations (but any excuse will do!).

    I just love the simplicity of style, and the unique Christmas traditions from the Nordic countries.

    God jul!

  2. Dear Amanda. I’m almost a bit sad there’s a year to next Scandinavian Christmas Fair in London too. Also regretting everything I didn’t buy… Taking the girls to Iceland is on my list too! I’ve been but think it’s great for family holidays too. Best wishes x
