There is something magical and beautiful about a white Christmas. I really could not imagine myself celebrating Christmas anywhere warm. I love Christmas and already had my holiday pj’s on the first day of December. But I totally lost my Christmas mood when I went to Zanzibar for a week in the middle of the month. I had such an amazing week in the sun, don’t get me wrong! I have the pictures to prove it. But my Christmas Spirit just disappeared in the warm sand of the Zanzibar beaches, and it really made me realize I need some white winter during the holidays. Snow is just so beautiful, and it beautifies the world. There is something so serene with snow covering the ground, the trees and my dog. These gorgeous pictures were taken on a stroll around the cabin area in Gautefall, Telemark.
