Reminds me of when my kids where little....the look on their faces when they'd seen it had snowed. And all the fun they had playing in it.

Red Dala Horse - Nils Olsson: One of Sweden's most recognized symbols. Handcarved in wood. Tracey's gift from her time in Sweden...

I know to most you won't know what this is. To me it is a part of my heritage, something that my grandma passed down through my mom to us. It is a dala horse which is a Swedish horse. I have many dala horse ornaments and things for my kitchen. They remind me of my grandma who we recently lost.- EB

Swedish dala horse

A Dalecarlian horse or Dala horse (Swedish: Dala) is a traditional carved and painted wooden statuette of a horse originating in the Swedish province of Dalarna. In the old days the Dala horse was mostly used as a toy for children; in modern times it has become a symbol of Dalarna as well as Sweden in general. http://creativeroots.org/2010/12/swedish-dala-horse/

Dala Horse from Sweden. This isn't actually a Christmas item, but (thanks to my Grammy), it reminds me of Christmas.

Dalarna, Sweden - This wooden horse is the symbol for the region Dalarna in Sweden.
