Christmas Calendar - 19 December 19 2017

 
Long before Christmas tree as a symbol of Nordic Christmas traditions these delicate, geometric mobiles called Himmeli were a part of Christmas decorations in Finland. They were originally made of straws and used from Christmas to Midsummer. The fragile decoration 'danced' with the drafts over the kichen table.
 

As the tradition is really old, you have to keep in mind that at the time, chandeliers were something exclusively for the curch or for the rich: ordinary people may have never had the opportunity to see one before the first chandelier seen in a church. You can immagine how amazed they must have been!

Some other stories talk about himmeli as a token to promote good harvest.

Today Himmeli decorations are very trendy in Scandinavian homes, and used throughout the year.
