Saffron buns. Or “lussebullar” as we say in Swedish. Definitely a tradition this time of the year! The children loves to bake them even if twisting them together can be a bit tricky. Digital overlay and template: Ali Edwards / Designer Digitals

The first snow. It fell last night! The very first snow around here this winter. It certainly didn’t take many seconds to get you awake this morning – the simple words “It’s snowing” were enough to get you guys out of bed in seconds. Finally! You have waited for the snow to come. Pure joy!...
