In Sweden we’re fond of our candy. We even have a day dedicated to eating it; Saturdays. We call it lördagsgodis (= Saturday candy). This quote became viral in early 2000. The Swedish people basically united behind it. It’s simple and informant and makes a clear statement. Frukt är inte godis (= Fruit is not candy). True though, isn’t it? 😅
Who else gets a really christmassy feel from this pic taken by @danirichardson__ ? We know it’s quite a while until Christmas but we just can’t wait - especially when we’re handed pictures like these 🙈

There are quite a few things on this Earth that you never get tired of or grow up from. Bubble wrap being one of them. The Slinky toy another. Things that are so unbelievably simple yet so entertaining. Just like cross-stitching! Almost as simple and entertaining as bubble wrap - not bad, huh?
Whether you like it or love it - Christmas is kinda around the corner, stomping your way with its heavy winter boots.
