In Sweden, we celebrate Christmas on December 24 with family, lots of Swedish food, presents, and the arrival of Santa. But only if you've been nice of course!
In Chicago, Wolves owner Don Levin hosts a Christmas Eve dinner at his house for Chicago Wolves players and their family. It was our second year celebrating Christmas here in Chicago. It's a little bit too far for us to go home to Sweden and celebrate, so exactly like last year, Don made it a little bit extra special for us Swedes! We got all kind of Swedish food we possible could wish for. We got ham, meatballs, mini sausages, eggs, salmon, cheese, Swedish roe among other things. We couldn't have been happier about what he does for us!
Last week, one of my best friends from Sweden arrived to celebrate New Year's Eve here in Chicago with us. We celebrated NYE with the rest of the team and I had a lot of fun! So far 2013 has been great and I hope it will continue all year long. Next week, the guys are going to Abbotsford for a long road trip, so I'm pretty happy my friend will still be here with me. The best part is we are going on a trip together before she's heading back to Sweden.
All the wives and girlfriends from the team want to wish all the Chicago Wolves fans a Happy New Year. Let's make 2013 a great year!
