Today I got a bit of X-mas feel. Saturday before Christmas and we decided to go shopping. Prepared for the year’s worst crowdedness on the Stockholm streets we were amazed to be almost alone in the department stores! Only us strolling around, some staff and the Christmas songs. No queues, no stress. Here’s the trick: When in Sweden, always do your late X-mas shopping between 7 and 10 pm on a Saturday.
