Going to Skansen on Saturday was to get Sanna and I into Christmas mode. It’s hard be belive it’s Christmas in less than two weeks. We do have snow now and it’s been freezing but I for one hadn’t really gotten into Christmas mode until the Christmas market.
It’s so pretty at Skansen. It’s obviously aimed at both locals and tourists but it’s not touristy if you know what I mean it’s done so tastefully and beautifully.
Here’s the stall where I bought the can of pickled herring in the top photo. How can you not buy from there?
And speaking of fish, this was lunch. “Sotare”, herring smoked over the open fire on a piece of crisp bread. Mmmmm.
Aside from the market, Skansen also has a shop outside the actual attraction so you can visit it without paying the entrance fee. It’s beautiful! They sell Swedish Crafts, design and traditional food items. This shop is open all year around btw.
Anyway, that’s all from Skansen. I’m now fully in Christmas mode and will be wrapping gifts later tonight, watching the Holiday, a Christmust.
