Advent stars

Do you have an advent star hanging in your window?

In many Swedish homes every window has one hanging or standing in it from the beginning of Advent. There’s mine in the photo, but you can find lots of different styles, colours and sizes at our favourite Swedish stores IKEA and Clas Ohlson:
