I will never forget my first Scandinavian Christmas Eve, it took place in Denmark, in Hillerslev on Funen almost in the middle of the country at a very handsome place. I was together with friends from Geneva, my fiancé’s family and of course my fiancé. That was the moment I was introduced to the Danish Christmas Traditions: There was roosted pork, caramelized potatoes, red cabbage, and many other delicious things... Wine, beer and schnapps in abundance.... After the dinner, we had the Christmas gifts, then the Christmas tree candles were lighted and everyone started to sing and dance around the Christmas tree. I was also impressed by the large music repertoires they had. It was a wonderful Christmas Eve!

Now I will experience my first Christmas in Norway, and I am learning about Norwegian Christmas music and traditions. Therefore, I will share a record that I found in our archives. I think that this is a really happy and nice potpourri of Norwegian Christmas music!!!

Merry Christmas!!!
