Before bedtime tonight and instead of a story, I asked the kids if they wanted to watch the Swedish TV Lucia Concert with me. They were keen, and actually sat through the whole hour, which made my Swedish heart very happy!
I was so pleased it was a traditional Lucia Concert this year, and of course I shed a few emotional tears. Lucia is one of my favourite traditions when it comes to Christmas and I thought back at last year when we saw a Lucia Concert live in the Skara Cathedral.
This however, was as good as it got this year...
Then again when you think about it, technology is fantastic - we can sit on the other side of the earth and watch something that aired on TV in Sweden only a few hours earlier!
