A sudden trip home for a week in early December and Dad’s passing away has put my usual Christmas season plans far behind. We did get our tree up, and a few decorations out, but this year my decorating will remain sparse. I’m focusing on purchasing gifts right now. And baking? So far, the count stands at zero.Our Swedish Santa Lucia display sits in its traditional spot on a high cabinet in the dining room.
After my gift shopping is done, we will schedule our Santa Lucia dinner. That, of course, will require a bit of buttery baking, and by then it will be Christmas.
