Hi, everyone! 🙂 Erin, again.
We had a wonderful night in a beautifully decorated city! Lund was glowing with Christmas lights and decorations. 🙂 We enjoyed a delicious turkey dinner, apple crumble pie, and after-dinner drinks! The turkey had some lemon and pepper flavor to it, the potatoes had some good seasoning, the baked apple went nicely with the turkey, and the warm apple dessert with cold vanilla sauce was delicious! I need to get every recipe. Below are a few pictures of the meal. Yum! 🙂
After our nice dinner and conversation, we roamed Lund with other students and visited a Christmas market about 15 minutes before closing. We are definitely planning on going back (and to other Christmas markets), but couldn’t help but purchase a bottle of a traditional holiday beverage, Svagdricka. It’s slightly alcoholic and sweet like Julmust, which is the non-alcoholic, root beer-like beverage with a sweeter flavor. It’s popular here in Sweden during the holiday. We also saw booths with creative artists who make little animals and characters out of a type of sugar dough, hand-made Christmas decorations, home-made marmalades, and more. I have a feeling that this is where we will be buying most of our Christmas gifts.
The walk home was very nice. Lund is so charming. Even in cold and wet weather, the historic buildings, cobble-stone streets, and Christmas decorations warm the heart. 🙂 We will be posting pictures from these markets very soon. Until then, enjoy the Christmas planning! I hope you all have started your Christmas shopping! 😉
