Santa Lucia katter

At work this early morning, a group of friends gathered us into a meeting room lit only by candles. At 8:30 in the morning, it is still pitch black outside. They then came in dressed in Santa Lucia garb: white robes with candles and pointy hats for the boys. They sang a Santa Lucia song and then served us Santa Lucia 'katter' ('cats'), which are special s-shaped buns with two raisins that are supposed to represent cat faces.

Santa Lucia's day was actually on the 13.December, but because of travel they couldn't celebrate it until this morning. I was very glad to be a part of this nice holiday surprise!

Later that day after a meeting, Svein and I decided to put some sound-insulating hexagons to good use. We built this truncated icosahedron (avkortet ikosaeder) and hung it in the lunch room. We were very pleased with ourselves!
