I´ve been going to Nebraska for a few weeks almost every year of my life. One thing I remember strongly from when I was a kid was visiting the American school. Exciting and nerve wrecking at the same time. This year Viola got to go to her cousins school with her aunt to talk about how we celebrate Christmas in Sweden. She was dressed as Lucia and handed out gingerbread cookies.

They talked about how dark it is in Sweden this time of year and that Santa actually comes to the house on Christmas Eve and hands out the gifts. Viola´s dad had made a drawing of an advent candle holder for the kids to color. Viola was very nervous on the way there but dealt with it like a true champ.
