My children had a Swedish grandmother, and while she was still living we would often have the family party on the 23rd, which she called Little Christmas Eve. The table would be decorated with Swedish horses and flags and laid with food from the old country (filtered through my non-Swedish father-in-law’s training in classic French cookery).
As we preachers and pastors prepare for Christmas Eve with all its festivities and stresses, come take a seat at the Julbord. Find a piece of smoked salmon, or eat some rotmos (our family’s favorite), and some Swedish meatballs with lingonberries, or go straight to the pepparkakor. I won’t tell.
Join the party by leaving a comment. How did worship go this morning? What’s on for tomorrow? Do you have a great idea to share? We’re here until a fresh version of the party starts tomorrow morning.
