The long wait for winter is happening. The days are becoming shorter and the nights longer but that only leads to the wonderful thing of snow. Snow is beautiful and lightens the mood of many people. Watching movies with hot chocolate when it's snowing out
Stockholm’s Old Town (Gamla stan) comes alive during winter with the sweet smell of warm glögg (mulled wine) and pepparkakor (gingerbread cookies) wafting through the air, and rows of stalls filled with handicrafts, toys, Christmas decorations and seasonal food items like smoked meats, jams and sweets.
