About this event
Celebrate an authentic Swedish Christmas on Sunday, Dec. 8 with the Norden Club at Hillcrest Country Club, 9401 O St. in Lincoln. Our annual Christmas Smorgasbord celebrating Scandinavia is open to the public. This year we highlight Sweden with a children's candle lit St. Lucia pageant! Sweden celebrates St. Lucia Day on Dec. 13 which marks the beginning of the Christmas season in Scandinavia and is meant to bring hope and light during the darkest time of the year. Traditionally the eldest girl in the family gets up early, dresses in white, and wears an evergreen wreath with candles on her head, so she has both hands free to serve coffee and baked goods to her family. There is a silent auction of Scandinavian items which benefits an educational scholarship fund for students to study abroad in Scandinavia. Doors open at 12:00 noon with hors d'oeuvres and cash bar available before a buffet dinner at 1:00 pm. Make sure to stop by the Swedish Christmas tree to have your photo taken. Advance reservation and payment is required by Nov. 30. Call Ted at #402-464-4682 for reservations and information on cost. Mail check made out to Norden Club, with names of all attending to: Norden Club, 4130 N. 42nd St. Circle, Lincoln, Ne. 68504.
