Post-Christmas observations

1) Kalle's Caviar still makes an excellent Christmas tree ornament
2) Has anyone ever thought about nominating the Gävle goat as Lucia, thus requiring him to wear a halo of candles? Seems to me it would kill two birds with one stone
3) The shortest day of the year, December 21, has now passed, so it only gets lighter until Midsummer in June, when Swedes begin mourning the passing of summer
4) It's not a bad idea to wait until after Dec 25 to do Christmas shopping, in light of post-Christmas sales and the fact that I'm in the US right now, which means a very favorable exchange rate
5) Even though it's been one of the warmest winters in Stockholm ever, it's still so cold and dark in Sweden in December that 60 degrees fahrenheit (15 C) seems like Christmas in July. I needed sunglasses, however, to avoid sun stroke as I was unaccustumed to the blinding 3 pm light after inhabiting the subterannean caves of Scandinavia for the last four months

Ha! Love your blog. I lived in Stockholm recently and Denmark prior to that (with an unfortunate year in England in-between). It makes me nostalgic! also sounds like a lot of my thoughts while there. Now in the neverending mayhem of New York, I would take a couple days in quaint Stockholm at the drop of a hat.

My god! You write words of truth and insight like noone before you, but how come you've stoped?
I'm a Swedish guy living in Netherlands since two years back, and man, things are done differently her. Women... are difficult. Maybe swedish women are too, but at least I had 20 years to learn how they worked there.

Anywayz... It's great to read your stuff and realize it's just the sweede in me that causes all these dating problems. That's what I wanna believe anyway.

Hi Curiosa! It´s Jorge from Venezuela, is it possible to send you an e-mail. I have some questions about Sweden in general and would like to ask you privately. If you could send me an e-mail where I could write you, I would truly appreciate it. Thanks a lot,
