Today was the shortest of the year. I have really felt it, the darkness. The last two years Denmark has been covered in snow at this time and, apart from all the trouble, snow really brightens your day – literally. So without the snow this year it has been dark, dark, dark. So yay for Christmas lights and yay for solstice!
This is from Lübeck in Northern Germany where I went with my mom and sisters last weekend. There is a marvelous Christmas market and the town is famous for its marzipan. So what’s not to love?
