Countdown to Christmas

It was a treat to collaborate with long-time Skogfjorden staffers Elizabeth “Elsebet” Halvorson and Valerie “Magna” Borey on the Holiday Heritage feature in this month's issue of Viking. Magna and Elsebet are highly creative teachers who know how to get kids excited about Norwegian language and culture. Among the fun ideas and resources listed for parents, teachers and lodge leaders in the article, there’s a link to this year’s Barnas Superjul advent calendar. Beginning Dec. 1, I know my own kids will be excited to count down to Christmas with a daily visit to this website, produced by the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation.

Amy Boxrud is editor of Viking magazine. She lives with her family in Northfield, Minn., where she’s a member of Nordmarka 1-585.
