Post Christmas Mega SALE – A way to fill shopping cart!


Christmas has passed, streets are still quite. The only place to find some people would be the shopping center all around the city. The deal is, post-Christmas mega SALE, up till 70% in some places! This sale will continue till 6th. Everyone one seem to have one goal in mind buy something. The busy crowd gives a good vibe of positive energy and existence of a lot of life force. One disadvantage is to find proper size. So, hurry up make it fast if you wanna bring something home!

The shopping fever has spread out even on street market! A good bargain skill can be very handy at such places. Outlets are not any exception either.

For some it seemed to be a family event, a nice little gathering. People with kids or pets its an event for everyone to exercise. Stockholm started to feel like a small city! while strolling in shopping center meet a friend and his wife sharing their coffee. I was offered a share even from that share 🙂

One important point to remember, you must keep a lot of time in hand. Mega SALE brings legendary queue.

It’s a busy time not only for the big brands but also for small cafĂ© shops. Being board of standing in a queue, a little ice cream break is always refreshing. Tired of caring shopping bags and waking from one shop to another, have a coffee break. Make it fun, feel the joy. Even I bought something, a DVD writer, ya I have my privilege. Never the less, well done Christmas Sale!

Xmas wind blows on the streets


Historically, Swedish society were heavily influenced by Christianity. Arguably modern swedes have crossed the boundaries of religion. I often hear, believing in God is not scientific enough. However, that could not contribute to the charm of Xmas celebration. 

It’s already December, wasn’t lucky enough to hit by the gentle touch of snow yet; walking through the streets of Stockholm’s old town gives a vibe of Christmas is on our door steps. Shining lights are wrapped around many big architectures. Decorative chandeliers hanging in the middle of the street creating a mesmerizing ambiance.

Xmas Decoration Light

Taking about environmental sustainability is a well appreciated topic. Save energy, save the world! Not to mention, how much energy does its take to light a city? There are still a significant part of our world waiting with great hope to receive a drop of man-made light. Places, where lack of power enforces development of the society. Globalization and distribution of resources across boundaries are whose responsibility, is what needs discovered. A strong debate may occur towards the survival importance of souls over satisfactions of our souls. In any case, I must encourage and emphasis the creativity of the decorations. i.e. read and white lights with shapes as depicts in the following picture.

Creative Xmas Lighting

A great complement to the Xmas decorations on the street, Santa Claus sends us some ambient light from divine. Burning red together with pleasing blue with blend of purple is just magical. Let the snow fall, will mention about Xmas markets and traditions.
