Sankta Lucia untz untz stajl

As you may know we still celebrate pagan traditions in Sweden, the main religion in Protestantism but the pre-Christian rituals have been preserved in a "christianised" way though. That is to say that the traditions have been given new names or new significations but the rituals are still practiced.
The 13th of december, Swedes celebrate the Sankta Lucia which consists in singing or listening to choir songs and lighten loads of candles. According to old Swedish legends, the night of the 13th of December is dangerous because it would animate bad supernatural powers. The ritual was a way to stay awake the hole night to avoid to get injured by them. Nowadays Swedes just go to the St Lucy concerts in schools/churches/concert locals (more info here if you're interested).
We went to Haggornas club that had a Lucia celebration at Berns.

Clara helped me taking the pictures.

Going "dark and difficult" for KGB.

 "Nobody knows I'm a lesbian"

Hanna was there,

 Lenine was there too.

Bella Elvira and me have been wanting to go to a gothic club together for a while, to dance to some 80's new wave and synth. Basically we wanted to go to one called Tech Noir but this one happens only a few times every year. So we went to a gothic night at the club KGB.
After we went to Under Bron where I GOT ARRESTED BY THE POLICE ON THE DANCEFLOOR for "doing weird things with my hands" (I was dancing) and "having big pupills" (with seems logic to me since it's dark in clubs). They forced me to pee in a cup in front of them, not the best experience of my life since exhibitionism isn't my thing.

Anyway the results proved I didn't take any drugs fuq d poliec fuq d systme and have a nice weekend!

Snow chaos - Cheap Monday Glow in the dark collection party - Haggorna's rave party at Berns.

Last wednesday Stockholm got hit by a snow storm. Even if the weather channels warned about it, it seemed like nobody was prepared to it, which resulted in quite a lot of funny scenarios : cars got stuck in the middle of the streets because the owners decided to drive in their cars even if the roads were covered by 80cm of snow, others thought they could ride their bicycles (???)... and the classical : people walking in high heels :))

Anyway, Rakel and me met in town, drank a coco, complained about the weather and went to Weekday for the release party of Cheap Monday's limited edition "Glow in the Dark".
I was looking forward to that collection. The bag wasn't "falling" good when you had things in it and you can't carry it on the shoulder because it's too tiny to put your arm in it, which disappointed me. But the sneakers looked very good and glowed a LOT. I also liked their glowing wallet; very practical since it will be easy to find in the bag that contains it.
I have no pictures of it but you can see it on Weekday's website.

We finished the night with going to Haggorna's rave night at Berns.
