Stockholm’s Holiday Season

Hey Folks!

We are into December, the holiday mood has already kicked in. The snow is here, decorated Christmas trees and fairy lights around the city make the atmosphere so cozy. It is such a beautiful experience to walk around the city to experience the Christmas spirit.

An Instagram boomerang is perhaps something that shouldn’t be missed 😉

Every house in the neighborhood is lit with beautifully decorated trees. So cozy to look at!

Last week was both so deadly, so successful and extremely fascinating. The most terrible deadlines were met and I have certainly emerged as a better person. Too many reflections, realizations, and not to forget the learning I have got out of the past week. Immense! I think its only during such times, we learn about ourselves. And, now having dealt with crazy things, I feel super liberated. 🙂

Well, it has already started to snow in Stockholm. It was my first snow experience and trust me, it was magical! I truly felt like living in the world of Narnia! The white snow can instantly lift up the spirits and the cheerfulness has no bounds. Everyone becomes a kid when it snows. White snow in the dark winters with a cup of hot chocolate and a warm cinnamon bun is what is called ecstasy!

Here is my first snow experience!

But, there is more to this Holiday season than the white snow and the fairy lights…yup! Shopping! There is a sale in almost every shop. Brands like H&M have offers that force you to shop. It’s inevitable! Haha! There are Christmas bazaars cropping up here and there. No matter if you’re looking around to buy a Christmas present or to renovate your wardrobe, the season has a sale in every shop.  I started my holiday shopping with a mission to make my room cozy and ended up spending a little over the budget. 😀

Sale! Sale! Sale!

This lovely setup to welcome the winter 🙂

Christmas Godis! 🙂

Finally, that’s how cozy I made my room. a little Christmas tree, a beautiful star and some warm lights for the cozy winter 🙂

Wish you a cozy winter! God Jul !   ☃️ ❄️ 🎄

Did you see the Nobel prize ceremony? Stay tuned to hear about my experience at the Student’s Nobel NightCap party 🙂

Did it actually SNOW today?

Hey Folks!!!!!

It’s been quite a busy week with exams. Now that exams are done, I feel super awesome!! Yesterday I had an amazing time at the Tentapub at Nymble, the student union house. An open dance floor is all you need to prep yourself for the new period. Haha!!

So, coming back to the topic. Did it actually snow today?!!! The white dust that was falling down was SNOW?

When I arrived in Stockholm, it was bright and sunny at 10 PM! yes 10 PM! It was a very strange experience for me, coming from southern India where the sun sets sharp by 6  all around the year. And, today the sun was almost down by 4.15 PM! The weather is changing every day and it’s getting colder..well like they say,…Winter is coming!!! But is winter arriving too early? LOL!

It was around 12.00 in the noon, I received a message in the Whatsapp Lappis group. Someone posted asking if it was actually snowing outside. And, when I looked out of my window, I did see really tiny flakes of white dust flying around. The cold October winds were gusting through the trees carrying the red and golden autumn leaves, and along with it, floated the white dust! ❄️

Not believing my eyes, I turned to my phone. The weather app cannot be wrong you see… and this is what I saw…

See the tiny snowflake? Looks like it was indeed snowing 🙂

I wouldn’t count this as my first snow. That’s when I can make a snowman and play with snowballs! You need to wait for that post! This is just October! Mild snowfall in October! It’s still crazy anyway

Quite contrasting to the afternoon, I saw an amazing sunset today. Well, I see every day, but today Dhruv had come to my place to click pictures. The perks of living on the fifth floor! My place has an amazing view of the city and my room is attracting visitors ’cause of that. LOL! Here are few pictures shot by Dhruv today 🙂

Yes! This was taken from my window!

The colours!!! God! I totally love my room and the view from here <3 🙂

The red Lappis buildings are gleaming brighter!

And did I tell you that it was also raining today? Rain, mild snow and a spectacular sunset! What more can I ask from this beautiful city?

Alright guys, its almost 5.30 now and I am going to catch some evening Fika, I have fallen for the coffee here!

From being lost in the smell of Indian curry to

falling for the aroma of cinnamon buns,

From relishing South Indian filter coffees to

enjoying Fikas every two hours,

Fom sunshine to snowfall,

From cheers to skål,

I have come a long way, indeed..

But the journey has only just begun…. 😛 🙂
