Gothenburg Christmas lights

When you suddenly notice that the entire city has been lit up like a Christmas tree, you realize that it’s that time of year again. As I walked around to explore the lit areas and compare them to the efforts of previous years, it struck me that this has been going on for ten years. As far as I know, 2004 was the first year they started this tradition.

Ten years. Whad’ya know.

Suffice to say, both me and the city have changed. But there is a light that never goes out.

Gothenburg lights Brunnsparken.
