Swedish Christmas

Homesick for a real Swedish Christmas with Swedish food, all the decorations
and Kalle Anka Julafton!
We always have a star in at least one of the windows and an electric candle thingy in the window/s.
Don't know how to translate it, in Sweden we call it adventsljusstake.
On the kitchen table we have one too but with real candles, you light one candle each Sunday until all four are lit at the same time and then it is Christmas. Sooooo pretty and very traditional.
You see the adventsljusstake and the star in many windows of homes all over Sweden at this time of year.
It's almost 4 30 am and I can't sleep, I am looking at pictures of stars and candles and miss Sweden.
