It’s time to say Merry Christmas! Once again the Christmas holidays have arrived and we are waiting for the rest of the family to arrive. As I hope is the case for most of you, this is probably the highlight of the day. At least for the first few moments until you long for that calm to return when everyone has gone back home.

This year we are celebrating the holiday in Vagnhärad, Sweden. This is where Jesper grew up and where the majority of his relatives still live. The other half of the family is on the Åland Islands. There is a lack of snow this year, but it seems like we will have the opportunity to enjoy a few hours of sunshine instead. Sunshine at the end of December is also something to be happy about.

We wish you a very peaceful holiday filled with happiness, joy and a lot of laughter.
