Norway Festivals and Events


Norway, 25th Dec, 2000
Preparations begin weeks before the festival season. The special Christmas beer, Juleol, is brewed; traditional dishes are prepared; cakes, biscuits, cookies, are baked together with the julekake, the sweet Christmas bread filled with raisins, candied peel and cardamom. Christmas celebration itself begins with the solemn reading of the gospel for Christmas Day, perhaps from a family Bible that is several hundred years old. As soon as the mass ends, the family sits down for a traditional meal, prepared before mass. Children, takes this special moment to exchange gifts.
