Jokkmokk’s Christmas Market

Last weekend it was Jokkmokk’s Christmas Market, which is a much smaller and low-key event than the “Winter Market”.  There were just a few small stalls there selling bread and other home made products.

Kelly was really happy because she got to ride in a traditional Sámi sled pulled by a reindeer.

Here is a picture that I took looking from our house to my neighbours house the other evening.  The snow is now  about 50cms deep.

Snow has arrived

During the last 48 hours about 30cms of snow has fallen, and before and after work I have been busy clearing away the snow.  I do not have any nice pictures unfortunately because it is dark when I go to work and it is dark when I come home.  The sun no longer appears above the horizon so we only have a couple of hours of good light, and at the present time I am working inside at my work, building structures to hold new signs for the ski tracks and snowmobile trails.

My daughter is very happy because last week she went to see Father Christmas/Santa Claus and gave him her Christmas list.

He has promised to come and visit us again on Christmas Day, just like he did last year!
