Om Anders braskar, skall julen slaskar

Before I get to the meaning of the title of this post, it is November 30th allihopa! The last day of dreary November is nearly over and we are one step closer to a fun filled Christmas in Sweden.

That means drinking, celebrating and passing out!

Which begs the all important question: will it snow on Christmas? And by Christmas, we mean December 24th. Not the 25th for you Americans.

For that, we ask Anders, the man who has November 30th as his namesday. It is said that if snows on this day, it will not on Christmas.

I know it is early in the day, but if anyone sees it snow in their region, send me a photo, and we’ll post which cities may not be getting a white Christmas this year.

  1. Ah, so Anders is something like Pauxatauney Phil? :)

    My mother-in-law just sent me a SLEW of photos of her neighborhood in Stockholm. Lots of lovely fluffy snow looks like now—so none for Christmas? Nothing in NYC yet, so maybe we’ll have snow?

  2. @J – Seems like a Swedish version of Phil!

    Yea, there is lots of lovely snow around. Looking like none for Jul though :(

    Hope you get some in NYC!
