Santa and the musicians

Santa

Christmas Carols in the rain

I visited the Christmas market at Tyresta today. Tyresta is a historical village and a well known national park in Haninge. The market took place at the square at the tiny village and there were a few stalls with food and handicraft, and I will show you some more photos and portraits in the coming days. One of the first people that I met today was Santa! If he looks familiar it's because I photographed him at another market one year ago. His real name is Ronny.After talking to him I heard some music. It was these two guys who decided to cheer up the crowds by performing a few Christmas Carols in the rain. I stayed around for a little over one hour before jumping back on my bicycle for a somewhat wet 15 kilometre ride home.

Sheesh, Steffe! Well, I enjoy your photos very much, it seems much too cold and wet to be biking around!

Well at least they look like they are dressed warmly and that guy in the top photo really does kind of resemble Santa!

That's a cool-looking Santa. His beard is even real!!

How many times have I told you to bring along your rain jacket when you visit Tyresta?! It always rains there but you never listen ...

It looks like Ronny was staying under a tent to stay dry. Can't have a wet Santa now can we?

This looks like a real Santa, with no fake beard!
Still biking in early December?

I'm a Viking so obviously I'm not bothered by some winter-like weather. But I really should have used rain protection!
