The weekend when the Scandinavian Christmas fairs come to London is always when I start to feel festive. The Finnish Church in Rotherhithe opened its doors this Wednesday with wonderful Finnish foods, sweets and Christmas decorations, while the Scandinavian Christmas market on the street between the Finnish and Norwegian churches was set up yesterday. A sunny and cold day, with the scent of mulled wine and Nordic Christmas hymns playing in the background, all that was missing was snow to make me feel all at home.
Here are some pictures from yesterday’s market.
|All that was missing was snow…|
|Now how could you say no to these fellows?|
|I love these stars and had to get a couple to decorate my windows.|
|These decorations are so cute!|
|There was live music too.|
|If tree’s one thing you have to taste, it’s Fazer chocolate with ginger snaps.|
|Finnish Christmas stars and cinnamon buns.|
|Inka Karppinen being a lovely volunteer.|
|‘I know all about you,’ said Father Christmas to the Englishman.
I was too scared to ask what he meant!
