Scandinavian Christmas You Might Have Missed!

Scandinavian themed Luminaries

So sorry for the disappearance. But it looks like I may be back for the remainder of the holiday season. At least I hope so!!!

Since most of us are waaaaaay too busy during December to keep up with our blog reading, tutorials I have shared in the Scandinavian Christmas series December 13th to December 24th on the Pickled herring blog are often missed. I thought I would share them here and now - right when we are all still eagerly seeking out Christmas inspiration!

Apple and Green Chile Scandi Heart Empanadas to Celebrate Lucia Day and Guadalupe Day.

Apple and Green Chile Empanadas

"Apple and Green Chile Empanadas" to celebrate both the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe (Dec. 12th) and Lucia Day (Dec. 13th)!

I am not from Mexico nor Catholic, and there is no Scandinavian blood in my recent ancestry, but I always celebrate December 12th and 13th - and quite often by blending the two cultural traditions that have so completely influenced my art, craft, heart and Winter Holiday celebrations.
