Today I went for a short trip to Linköping. Presents were already bought earlier, so today it was more about getting the hair done (happens about twice per year) and general browsing and people watching. It was a relaxed atmosphere on the streets. People stopping and chatting with each other, carrying the last presents or food shopping bags home. In most of the shops, the attendants were a bit worn out after the Christmas shopping time, and I reckon they will just be extremely happy when they finally can go home and relax, even if they might have difficulties to adjust from Christmas rush to Christmas peace with the family and loved ones (been there, done that for quite some years).
Anyhow – all of you, have a Merry Christmas and a great start into the New Year!
