December 22nd – The little Drummer Boy’s carol. I am a little behind posting my Christmas calendar this year, but better late than never! This illustrated christmas card is in attribute to one of my favorite english christmas carols the little drummer boy, as well as one of my favorite danish christmas songs that mentions a little drum hanging on the Christmas tree. All in all I find that the drum is a lovely symbol of the joyous music that enchants us during the holiday season. This is the 22nd illustration in my Christmas coloring card series.

December 17th –Beautifully decorated front doors this Christmas! I don’t know about you, but one of my favorite thing to do during december is simply walking around admiring the beautifully decorated doors and hourses. Christmas lights, rings, snowmen – just seeing people enjoy making their homes cater to the Christmas Spirit around town. My mom made these beautiful rings every year since I was a little kid, so this is how my family home front door looks like most years 🙂 This is the 17th illustration in my Christmas coloring card series.

December 9th – In northern Europe we go to the forests and collect all kinds of greens, cones, nuts and berries. Then we  make our own Christmas decoration with a countdown candle. This is one of my most cherished memories as a kid. It is a tradition to spend time with the family or our loved ones. It is a creative outlet that we spend the rest of the month looking at and remembering the time we spent together. This is the ninth illustration of my 24 illustrated Christmas card series.
