Do it Swedish this year: Scandinavian Christmas Market

Do it Swedish this year. Our co-hosts, very Swedish Hans and not-so-Swedish Penny Lane, would like to invite you to an unforgettable winter experience..

Are you dreaming of the ultimate Nordic Christmas with your family and loved ones gathered in front of the crackling fireplace whilst crystal white snowflakes fall softly outside?

Think again, this is London... :)

Hmm well, a white Christmas can never be guaranteed but you can most certainly bring a bit of Scandinavian Christmas into your home by visiting the traditional Christmas Fair which is organised by the Swedish Church in London on 24th & 25th of November.

On offer is traditional Swedish food and drinks, lots of decoration, design and gift items, wrapping paper and cards, etc.

Meeting Point: Outside the entrance at 3pm.

Once we get tired of the Christmas theme we'll wander down the road to a nearby pub for welcome refreshments.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ah, dont forget:

Wear your brightest happy clothes, maybe a colourful scarf or those lovely knitted gloves, your red Santa hat or even your Irish St Patrick's hat, or yellow high visibility vest or that orange skiing jacket..no excuses..

Let's brighten up the winter, celebrate light and happiness with your favourite Europeans over a glass of heart warming mulled wine

This is the festive season. It ain't the time to be gloomy :)

    Lots of Swedish style Christmas decorations to buy, albeit I did not buy any. A bit expensive. However, Drinks at the pub were reasonably priced. Thanks to all whom organized this outing.

    Very nice, low key market with lovely ( and overpriced) Christmas decoration. It was worthwile going just to get into the Christmas spirit - the Swedish way. Well chosen pub for the meetup afterwards.

    Quick info on the pub stop after the Christmas Fair. I assume we'll leave the event around 4:30-ish and we'll wander down the road to the gastro pub 'The Larrik' on 32 Crawford Place, W1H 5NN. I have booked some tables from 5pm for approx 20 people so that we can sit together and talk, drink or nibble on excellent food. As far as mulled drinks are concerned, the pub stocks mulled cider but if you want to sample mulled wine I'm sure there will be plenty on offer in the Christmas Fair. See you tomorrow.

    Ebru, what is a "regular" market? ;) Do you mean South Bank, Brick Lane, etc? Beside the obvious difference in theme & food, you might want to have a look at this link for a write-up of impressions from last year's market: http://helenahalme.blogspot.co.uk/2011/11/swedish-church-christmas-fair-in-london.html
