Embracing Scandinavian Christmas Traditions

Scandinavian Christmas decor is known for its simplicity, elegance, and timeless charm. One of the most iconic elements of Scandinavian holiday decor is the tradition of woven hearts, or “julehjerter” in Danish. These delicate ornaments, crafted from paper or fabric, are intricately woven and often adorned with festive motifs. Back in 1861, Hans Christian Andersen created the first woven paper heart as a gesture of love for his sweetheart, inspiring a cherished tradition that continues to enchant homes across Scandinavia.
