I hardly put up Christmas trees though I’ll probably need to start doing so now that there’s a kid in the house.

Dotting squares, street corners, and neighborhoods all over Stockholm are small Christmas tree (julgrann) vendors with freshly cut pine trees for sale.

Here’s one such vendor camped out at Medborgarplatsen (Citizen Square) in Södermalm.

The smell of caramelized almonds wafting through the air definitely puts me in the holiday spirit.

While it may not be as atmospheric as Gamla stan’s own Christmas market, hanging around Stockholm’s center at Sergels torg still puts me in the holiday spirit.
