This Jesus mosaic from the Sancta Sanctorum is neither Swedish nor a Christmas market.

It’s pouring down rain in Rome and it’s 52F, so it hardly feels like the Christmas season (at least to this Jersey girl). Nevertheless, local holiday markets have commenced! Tomorrow November 30 and Saturday December 1, the Swedish church in Rome will be hosting its annual Julbasar (Christmas Market) featuring typical Swedish holiday food and beverages. Swing by for some glögg (mulled wine), pepparkakor (gingerbread cookies), kanelbullar (cinnamon buns), polkagrisar (candy canes), and varmkorv (hot dogs). I have no idea what hot dogs have to do with Christmas, but I will happily eat them at the Julbasar. The market is open from 1-7pm on November 30 and from 11am-7pm on December 1.
