Swedish Christmas!

I spent my Christmas break in Sweden. I celebrated Christmas with the family of a close friend from class. It was my first Christmas and it was much fun. A lot of singing, drinking and hardly any mention of Jesus. It felt very much like family and I remember returning home feeling great. Here are some pictures from the Christmas Dinner.

All in all it was a great evening. Many families meet each other only once a year on Christmas eve. It’s quite different from how it is in India, I feel. But that makes this event even more special for everyone. And more memorable. Families. Can’t live with them, can’t live without them.
