The Volvo Holiday Event is all about celebrating Christmas in a way that is familiar to Sweden which is all about creativity and originality. What better way to show off you creativity and originality then by creating straw ornaments (a traditional Swedish holiday decoration) that can be used to decorate your home and your tree? If you have a staircase in your home or even a mirror in a central room these would look beautiful hanging in front of them and give a look of rustic elegance.

Lingo berries, a staple of Sweden and can be used to make jams and jellies, juices and even liqueur but in this case the people of the Volvo Holiday Event have taken this festive fruit and turned it into a wreath that is what Swedish girls wear to celebrate St. Lucia with candles in their hair.

Lastly, the people of the Volvo Holiday Event know how hard you work at wrapping your presents and making them so beautiful that it's a shame to open them! That's why they also have a video showing you how to wrap presents seamlessly. How do they do that? Just check the video out to find out!

Your family will love these great tips and ideas and who knows? You may end crating some new traditions all thanks to Volvo Holidays!
