Welcome to your Baltic Christmas on Femme au Foyer!
After 24 Days of a Baltic Christmas received so many positive comments last year, I’ve decided to continue the series this year albeit with a slight variation.
Last year’s countdown to Christmas was a showcase of Estonian, Latvian and Lithuanian holiday food, crafts and traditions. Baltic authors such as Zinta Aistars, Marika Blossfeldt, prof. Guntis Šmidchens and Elga Ozols joined us with Christmas memories, stories and recipes, while bloggers Marianna, Daina, Heather, Tania and Imanta shared family holiday traditions, new and old.
This year’s countdown is intended to be a guide to creating your very own Baltic Christmas: how to make Baltic-inspired crafts, food and memories. Inspired by posts from last December such as Lelde’s whimsical snowballs, Sandra’s delicious zaķu austiņas, Inga’s DIY puzuri guide and piparkūkas recipes, I’ve enlisted the help of some very capable friends in simple ways and fun crafts to bring a Baltic Christmas to your home every day until Christmas. Please join me in the 2015 version of 24 Days of a Baltic Christmas!
