ITS ABOUT TIME FOR CHRISTMAS...
MATCH SHOWROOM BRINGS YOU TO
THE RESIDENCE OF THE
CONSUL GENERAL OF SWEDEN
MATCH SHOWROOM 聖誕節來襲
By December, Sweden has very few hours of daylight. The first Sunday of Advent comes as an eagerly awaited sign that Christmas is approaching. Time to light the candles, heat up the mulled wine known as "glögg" and get into a warm Christmas mood of the snowy winter!
十二月的瑞典，晝短夜長。第一個星期就瀰漫著聖誕氣息。點燃蠟燭，加熱 "glögg" 葡萄酒，室外冬雪飄然，漸漸步入一個溫馨的聖誕氣氛。
EXPERIENCE THE SWEDISH CHRISTMAS
Sweden is a place that values cultural festivities, and values the importance of bringing joy and unity to families and children. Here, we were introduced to the Swedish traditions with the team from consulate general of Sweden, and got to experience the most authentic Swedish Christmas.
The four candles is a very symbolic sign for the approaching Christmas.
Each Sunday until Christmas, a candle is lit -
until all four candles are alight throughout the month.
It is especially exciting because children’s expectations grow with every candle.
On the first Sunday of Advent,
many Swedes get together to drink glögg,
which is a hot, spicy mulled wine with almonds and raisins.

With the delightful scents of gingerbread, it rings that time of the year again - christmas!
Baking gingerbread cookies played a big part in the Swedish christmas festivites.
Here, the Consul General of Sweden in the photo above teaches us how to make them -
it was super simple and easy!
First, roll the dough flat, and pick your favorite cookie-cutter into any iconic Christmas shapes!
