The sights, sounds, tastes, and traditions of a Nordic Christmas in Portland, OR.
ScanFair is an annual two-day Nordic craft fair extravaganza reminiscent of Christmas markets in Copenhagen, Helsinki, Oslo, Reykjavik, and Stockholm.
Cheerful hand-drawn letters and illustrations gave this year a festive, cozy theme. All five Nordic countries were represented with their flags and colors.
We created a mini social campaign with holiday-themed vocabulary words from each country.
I grew up celebrating Swedish holidays, but my favorites are Lucia (Winter solstice) and Midsommar (Summer solstice). It's an excuse to entertain, try Mormor's recipes, and honor the culture I love.
Celebrating the longest night of the year. Food, drink, and flower crowns until sundown.
Themed after Christmas ornaments made of straw.
