In search for a deep frozen chicken at a random Supermarket, we hear a life choir singing…? Everyone stood still to listen and it was so amazing! and for us kind of unreal too. My first experience with carolling, to be honest (see picture below).
Christmas is the moment of the year that in the streets, at shopping malls and houses, people sing Christmas songs, with burning candles and dressed in beautiful clothes. And at the same time at public squares and shoppings malls a big Christmas Tree draws you in to buy buy buy.
The other thing that is different is that I have heard many people celebrated this time of year ‘quietly’, meaning that they did not do anything special. Maybe a bbq with family and/of friends. Here and there some Christmas ligths and tree, but that’s about it.
It’s more of a ‘Western’ adopted celebration…as we experience it, being here.
A small picture-impression of the turn of the year for us.
