Preparing for christmas

Today we made some "julgranskarameller", I don´t know the english word. It´s like a present filled with candy that we hang in the tree and then, when it´s time to take down everything you have a "julgransplundring" and eat it all.
Here is a description of julgransplundring that I found at

"Swedes never miss an opportunity to dance round a tree, and on tjugondag Knut (twenty days after Christmas Eve), the traditional Julgransplundring (Christmas tree plundering) is as much about staying warm as marking the end of the holiday with a final song and dance before being reminded of the cold, dark midwinter.
