Thank you for sharing this information. When I was growing up, my parents were very active in an organization called Sons of Norway here is the US. They always celebrated the Day and one of the girls in the lodge dressed up and carried the candles. I think I even have pictures of my nieces wearing the outfits. We always celebrate Christmas Eve with a dinner and gifts. My mother always made rummegrot (sp?) and some kind of rice cream that was a dessert. L-Jay, I think you gave me an idea for a blog post. I’m going to find the pictures and write up about an American Norwegian Christmas. Thanks!
