How to autumn turned into winter

The rest of the year has gone so fast. Autumn was fabulous with all the color splendor. I could spend entire autumn at the park.colors-of-autumnautumn-lightWe visited in magnificent giant’s kettles which are located in Helsinki. There is two of them, one on the top and one on the bottom! They are really miraculous. Nature is amazing.jollaksen-hiidenkirnutSoon after that the first snow rained, already at the beginning of November, which is very early. The joy lasted a couple of weeks, then it melted away. Now in southern Finland there is no snow. Let’s see do we have a white Christmas.the-first-snowThe end of November is the Christmas street opening ceremony and the city switching on the lights to the streets. People can admire festive parade which ran through the city.

When the snows have come and gone, you are lucky when you see rainbow in the end of November ❤rainbow-in-november

Santa Lucia brings light into the dark times. It always reminds me Italy where Santa Lucia is originally from. Listen to this! The girls sang so beautifully.

I wish you a warm and peaceful Christmas time,

Love Sini ❤

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Days are going so fast and it’s only four nights before Christmas eve. In Finland we celebrate Christmas in Christmas eve, when comes Santa Claus and presents are given. Festive dinner is served in the evening and everybody are dressed in their best. Lantern glowI have been bake some Christmas goodies. In my favourite cake is a lot of spices; cinnamon, cardamom, carnation, ginger and bitter orange peel. Oh, and smell, it’s awesome. I do this delicious spice cake year-round, not only at Christmas time, but of course it’s perfect in this time.Sini Christmas time 2015Would you like a piece?

Christmas time

Most of us loves Christmas, so do I. Beautiful lights shine through the darkness and illuminate streets, houses and homes and bringing the grandeur of this special time. You can feel the magic of Christmas in the air ❤

Christmas markets open, every corner smells of mulled wine, spicy scents spread through the streets. Children’s faces turn to big smiles, when they can enjoy the carousel ride. What a joy!
