Nordic Museum to celebrate Julefest this weekend

The 41st annual Julefest celebration is this weekend at the Nordic Museum.

On Saturday and Sunday (Nov. 17 – 18) the museum will become a winter wonderland, with Nordic treats, Juletide cocktails in the Valhalla Beer Garden, and a huge craft fair with goods from local artists. They’ll also have the recent addition of the Norwegian sleigh, and of course, the opportunity to meet Santa.

There will be Norwegian traditional winter treats and drinks such as vínarterta, lefse (soft Norwegian flatbread), æbleskiver(spherical Danish pancakes), and glögg, a hot spiced wine. Goodies2Go will be at the festival, selling krumkake (Norwegian waffle cookie), rosettes (Norwegian and Swedish deep-fried, cookie-like pastry) Julekake (Norwegian Christmas bread) and more.

There will be live music throughout each day including the Norwegian Ladies Chorus, Karusellen, TinnFelen, Poulsbo Leikerringen, The Winter Band, Metro Gnomes, the Norwegian Male Chorus, and more (full music line-up here).

Tickets for Julefest are $7 — for an additional $5, visitors can also tour The Vikings Begin exhibit.

They better have a gender fluid Santa or I’m not taking the kids.

Oh, come on. Take the kids. Just explain to them that Seattle has gotten a little ‘strange’.
On the plus side, Mike O’B won’t likely be there!

Hi, thanks for your support. Say fellow, you don’t know that I won’t be there! Deep fried Norwegian pastries, Glogg, and Metro Gnomes? Sounds like a fine, non-gender-specific time. Get Woke, Friend! Maybe I’ll even buy you a beverage. Vote Salty, Vote O’Brine 2019!

Friendly reminder that Christmas is only holiday that our elected officials and civic “leaders” avoid referencing by name. You will hear “HIV” more often than “Christmas”, and they will wish “a happy” every other holiday, no matter how obscure, before wishing the majority of their constituents a “Merry Christmas”. This is noticed even by Muslims and Jews in many places, who themselves have no qualms about exchanging holiday wishes and acknowledging their neighbor’s holy days.

Hello.

This article is about the celebration of Julefest at the Nordic Museum.
Your comment is about your inability to grasp sexual assault.

Your parody of a “woke millennial moron” is spot on. I LOL’d hard this time, IE.

Now where did Santa touch you, Johnny?

That’s Mike, actually (and thanks for your support). Now listen, friend, just because Santa touched you ‘somewhere’ is no reason to point fingers. Santa may just have been experiencing randiness, and therefore is a victim himself! Unless he was a cisgendered white Christian male, in which case, oh yeah, he’s guilty, we don’t even have to have a trial. Straight white males, they’re just the worst, amirite! Get Woke, Friend (C), and we’ll see you at Julefest! And remember, Vote Salty, Vote O’Brine 2019!
