My mom’s Christmas decorations

Each year we celebrate Christmas at my parents’ place, and going to their house (no matter where they live) is bound to make my Christmas spirit top 200%. Why? Well, it’s a lot of things. It’s the feeling of being with loved ones, the act of coming “home” and then of course my mom has the best Christmas decor in the world.

A lot of it I can remember from when I was a little kid, and her whole style is very old school with a few funky things thrown in for fun. So today’s post is gonna be all about sharing pics of my favorite things.

The Christmas goat is an old old tradition. They can be traced back to the old viking days where people would make these in winter time as an offering to the god Thor in the hopes of a good spring and summer. Most people aren’t aware of it, but Thor wasn’t a war god (those were Odin and Tyr). Thor was the protector of the land and he controlled the natur power, so he was the god who needed to be happy when wanting a good harvest, or he might make it drown in rain or dry out. This style of Christmas goats is actually swedish and came to denmark around 1945 🙂

  1. What gorgeous decorations. It reminds me of my Nanna’s decorations with the cute little Christmas figures! I adore the staircase, I don’t have a staircase, but that decor makes me want one!

    Gorgeous!

    Hope you and your family have a wonderful a Christmas.
