Filipino Christmas Spirit in Sweden

We, Filipinos are known for celebrating the longest Christmas in the world.
Christmas in the Philippines, one of two predominantly Catholic countries in Asia (the other one being East Timor), is one of the biggest holidays in the archipelago. The country has earned the distinction of celebrating the world's longest Christmas season, with Christmas carols heard as early as September and lasting until Epiphany, the feast of the Black Nazarene on January 9 or the Feast of the Santo Niño de Cebú on the third Sunday of January. The official observance is from 16 December with the beginning of the Simbang Gabi to Epiphany. (source WIKIPEDIA)

Living in Sweden where LAGOM (just enough or just right) is very important but nobody says that I have to behave collectively as long as I am not breaking any law, I will practice some of my culture or things that I love like decorating our home & garden according to my terms! Btw, how do you celebrate Christmas in your adopted country?

Christmas love to all/Dredd
