Finland is all about Moomins and the Moomin mug is a kind of institution here. The company that makes them, Arabia, comes out with several new designs each year. And some people collect all of them. 

I do have several I've gotten as gifts, you can see them here. But myself, I just collect the winter ones. They come out with just one new design each year, so it stays manageable. 

I got into collecting them quite accidentally, I got one as a gift, then bought  the next one myself and then thought, hmm it might be a fun tradition to have a special set of mugs for Christmas time. To drink glögg out of (my favorite Christmas time drink). I now have five mugs, including this new one and I don't think I'll go on with this habit forever. I might stop after six, that seems like a good amount. Or maybe I'll just buy the prettiest ones from then on. We'll see. But having dozens of mugs just doesn't appeal to me.

Anyway, above is the mug for 2017. It isn't very Christmasy in the traditional sense, but I like the clean white and blue based design. And the Moomins make them a bit whimsical.
