How is Christmas Celebrated in Sweden?

Christmas activities begin with Advent in Sweden and the ceremony of Saint Lucia or ‘Luciadagen’. Decorations with lights and trees are a big part of the festivities with most of the celebrations being done on Christmas Eve. Families gather for a big buffet dinner with a wide range of meats and a special beverage called ‘glogg’. Christmas Day is usually quiet and people attend church services called ‘Julotton’ and all celebrations for the Christmas season ends on January 13. Look here for more information:
