The christmas fair in Haga started, as last year, in November.

On saturday the 25:th of November started the christmas fair in the old part og Gothenburg, Haga. This part of Gothenburg is from the 17:th century by order from Queen Kristina who wanted a suburb city to Gothenburg on the meadows round Fort lion. The houses you see here today is built in late 1800 and are called "Landshövdingehus" or governorhouses. The County commissioner decided in the late 1800 that they did not allow woodenhouses because they had a lot of trouble with fires on these. as a solution they where allowed to build woodenhouses on a stone basement. These houses are, often, built with the first floor made of stone and then two or three floors above of wood. The houses where often used by the working class in Gothenburg and are today quite popular amongst youngsters and students due to the old charm.
