Perhaps everyone will always prefer to spend Christmas the way they remember it from their childhood, but before you know it, you may suddenly start to associate it more with pickled herring and Donald Duck.
We're keen to hear how you celebrate the holidays. Take part in one of The Local's polls on social media, and leave a comment – we will publish a selection of the best comments in the article later today.
Almost 100 people (ok, 93) voted on Twitter. The vote was very evenly split, with 53.8 percent preferring Christmas in Sweden and 46.2 percent saying they liked it best back home.

The Facebook poll is still open:
Here are some of the comments we've had so far:
I enjoy both and we try to combine the two… but back home (England) will always win.
Swedish Christmas is a bit too structured (?) for me… it feels here like EVERYONE follows the same traditions, whereas back home there’s more variance from family to family.
