What in the world is ”Twentieth Knut Day”…? 🙂 St Knut’s Day. In Swedish tjugondag jul (Twentieth day of Christmas) or tjugondag Knut (Twentieth Knut Day)
The 13th of January marks 20 days after Christmas, and the end of Christmas here in Sweden. Today is the day that you traditionally remove the Christmas decorations that have been up since first of Advent, and you have a Christmas tree plundering party (julgransplundring) with dancing around the Christmas tree before you throw it away. Like dancing around the Maypole at Midsummer. Same dances, basically the same songs with a few Christmassy exceptions. Why change a winning concept?
So following tradition, I today cleaned out Christmas. Out with the cosy lights and candles. I will miss them!
Just lighting it all up one last time!
Farewell beautiful advent candles.
Farewell, my favourite decoration – my ”tomte” lamps.
Bye bye electrical advent lights, and my skinny legs handsome ”tomte”.
See you next year. I miss you already!
No more Christmas. A quick fix. Need to find another table runner – and before I do, iron this one. LOL!
When did you clean out Christmas? Do you miss the decorations?
