Oh dear! Maybe it's just that we all love what we've been conditioned to think of as Scandi, trad or mod, and want to inject a little bit of it into our own personal worlds. Is there really such a thing as 'authentic culture' anyway? Most anthropologists would say culture's what you imagine it to be, albeit in light of what we absorb from the communities around us. Surely it's about fun and comfort and what works for you? Appreciate the insights from people raised in a particular environment, though, especially the license to clutter once a year! . Let's all just enjoy Christmas!
