Nordic Christmas 2012

 From November through mid-January the American Swedish Institute (in Minneapolis, Minnesota) is decorated for a Nordic Christmas. They have a separate room for each of the 5 Scandinavian countries: Iceland, Finland, Denmark, Norway, and Sweden. This is how they decorated for Christmas 2012... if you are not able to make it in person, enjoy this photo tour...

 Danish Christmas tree ornaments made out of paper!

Lots of inspiration to have a more Scandinavian Christmas.
