I think we do our bedding different than in the USA, CAS. There is a sheet over the madress/madress cover, then we have a thick fluffy coverlet filled with down - we place these in a double-sided cover of cotton or flannel. Pillows are also filled with down. Some synthetic materials are in use now, but I still think the down is best. My nose usually sticks up, but my better half likes to sleep on his stomach and bury his face in the pillow. It really is nice and warm. I often fluff up the down coverlets (we call them "dyne") and hang them and the pillows out the window in the fresh air for a while during the day (as long as there is no snow or rain).

Babies and toddlers have a lamb wool under them when they sleep. Some older people use them, too. Our youngest grandson would only take his daytime nap if his carriage was placed outdoors. Most babies take their naps outside, year round. We are really guite warm and I guess we are used to living in a colder area of the globe. 


I have a hard time sleeping in a cold room with alot of heavy blankets on me. About halfway through the night I will wake up drenched in sweat and freezing. I do much better in a somewhat warm room with lighter covers. I think I just start to suffocate underneath all that material. biggrin


I would just never survive in those kinds of circumstances. Though I grew up in New England and lived in Wyoming, you would think I should be used to the cold. But I was always cold there. Now here in California, it's such a relief that it rarely gets below freezing and almost always warms up during the day past 50 in the winter. I just don't think I could live in a cold climate anymore, especially considering how much time I spend outside.

Sometimes I wish it was warmer, but then I would miss the gorgeous autumn days, the the diamonds in the snow, and the renewal of spring.

(I live in southeastern Norway - more temperate - and north Norway is not for me)

If the glaciers return, I am moving in with you Cas. LOL

  If I sleep under a pile of blankets like that, I sweat, then I kick the blankets off, then I wake up. No fun at all.


 


  And I've visited a few people who keep their house uncomfortably cold. Once. If they didn't want me to visit, they could have just said so.

So I'm not the only one.
