Julbord lecture by Richard Tellström

October 17, 2018 @ 6:30 pm

“The Christmas Julbord – Swedish Christmas food heritage in both USA and Sweden” 

In this lecture, Richard Tellström will explore both the Swedish Christmas table from the 1800’s as well as the Christmas food traditions the immigrants took with them to the US. Which of these traditions are still living among the Swedish-Americans today? We will look at the purpose behind the Swedish Christmas table and how it developed during the 1900’s. We discuss how traditions and family memories shape our Christmas Eve. Julbord can be in some ways be seen as a celebration of your ancestors and family heritage.

Soup with rolls will be served at 6:30 p.m. followed by the lecture at 7 p.m.
