Today I went to ScanFair, a Nordic craft fair that was held in Portland over the weekend. I had pancakes and glögg....probably the best glögg I've ever had.

I still believe in tomtar (gnomes), trolls and all the other mystical creatures that exist in nature with us. I grew up reading these stories.

Midvinternattens köld är hård,
stjärnorna gnistra och glimma.
Alla sova i enslig gård
gott intill morgontimma.
Månen sänker sin tysta ban,
snön lyser vit på fur och gran,
snön lyser vit på taken.
Endast tomten är vaken.

(Excerpt from "Tomten" by Victor Rydberg)

Magic mushrooms are often found in art together with Santa. There is a reason for that, old history there.
