My name is Elinor and I live in a small town named Filipstad in the east of Värmland, Sweden. It is a town with 6000 inhabitants. Many children live in Filipstad and also a lot of old people. There are three elementary schools and two high schools in Filipstad. In my photos I have tried to present Filipstad in the wintertime. I've taken some pictures of the countryside, of the really beautiful lake I live next to and some pictures of a Swedish celebration called Lucia and a Christmas market. The Christmas market is a tradition; every year on 13 December we celebrate Lucia and we have a Christmas market on the town. There are a lot of people there to socialize and buy things to support different sport clubs in Filipstad. Each year Filipstad's ambassador is there and gives an annual Christmas speech. Lucia in Sweden is also a tradition, we sing Christmas-songs, for example "Santa Lucia" and "Lusse-Lelle".
