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.

I often tell my friends that Stockholm is at its most photogenic during long summer days.

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.
