Norlii Box December 2021: Scandinavian Christmas

Scandinavian Christmas traditions speak to me. There’s a lot of baking, a lot of candles, and elves leave little presents in your boots (as long as you keep them well fed ๐Ÿ˜‰).

They call it fika (pronounced fai-kuh) and it’s said to prevent burnout, boost creativity and productivity, improve longevity, and increase happiness, among other things. It’s also the theme of the latest Norlii Box and maybe my favourite so far! The Scandinavian home and lifestyle box ships every other month from Denmark to Canada and the US.
