  • Our Christmas: A Scandinavian-American Christmas/Jul Season in Tradition and Practice

    Our Scandinavian-American Christmas/Jül Season is a virtual smorgasbord of traditions and practices celebrated each year from late November through early January. They are a blend of religious observances and secular celebrations. Some traditions, such as the Christmas tree, are an adaptation of traditions from non-Scandinavian areas. Other traditions, such as dessert baking and the use of lights, have distinct Scandinavian origins. The purpose of this book is to present, enlighten, preserve, and perpetuate our Scandinavian-American Christmas/Jül traditions and practices with the intent to make your season more meaningful and enjoyable. To fulfill that intent stories, traditional crafts, songs, and recipes, are included through-out this book. Reading the stories, making the crafts, singing the songs, and baking the cookies, will increase your Christmas/Jül Season enjoyment. A systematic discussion of such a varied and interwoven content is difficult. As a result this book’s discussion begins with the Julstav Calendar and then proceeds in date order, beginning in November with Advent and ending in January with the Jül’s Leaving. Non-date specific elements have been woven into this presentation format. This book is a guide to add meaning and enjoyment to your season.

  • Jul: Swedish American Holiday Traditions

    Christmas traditions, particularly those involving food, often honor our ancestors. Throughout the Midwest where Swedish immigrants settled, the dishes placed on the julbord (Christmas table) tell stories about who we are, where we come from, and where we are heading.In exploring these holiday customs, Patrice Johnson begins with her own family's Christmas Eve gathering, which involves a combination of culinary traditions: allspice-scented meatballs, Norwegian lefse served Swedish style (warm with butter), and the American interloper, macaroni and cheese. Just as she tracks down the meanings behind why her family celebrates as it does, she reaches into the lives and histories of other Swedish Americans with their own stories, their own versions of traditional recipes, their own joys of the season. The result is a fascinating exploration of the Swedish holiday calendar and its American translation.Featured dishes include yellow pea soup (ärtsoppa) and Swedish pancakes (Svenska plättar); assorted Swedish cookies like pepparkakor, rosettes, and meringues; meatballs with pickled cucumber; the julhög, a breakfast pyramid of bread, cheese, fruit, and cookies; and so much more. Come, raise a glass of punsch, hear tell of holidays past, snack on cardamom bread, and celebrate jul the m...
