What to do on Christmas in Stockholm

The last Christmas markets are available today and tomorrow, Skansen and Old Town are the best ones but if you are in a hurry you might catch the Christmas market in the central station!

Shopping at NK, the luxury department store in Stockholm. However, why not wait until the 25th when the big year end sale starts, you might make a bargain!

Then there the one and only Swedish TV show you should see, Karl-Bertil Jonsson’s Christmas Eve. The program that shaped millions of Swedish people into being a little bit better persons, more generous, friendly and gave them a little larger humanitarian heart.

The story of smart boy who sees a way to take what the rich don’t need and give to the poor. All in such a spirited way that it makes everybody happy in the end. Since it is written by Tage Danielsson it is not completely by the book which makes it even greater, Christmas evening at 19:00 to 19:25 on SVT1

Here is just one line from the wonderful film:
“Robin Hood was Karl-Bertil Jonsson’s idol, for this was in the days when a
fourteen-year-old idol worship did not necessarily have to be of a sexual nature.”
Don’t think there are any subtitles available so grab a Swedish friend to do the translation for you. The program might also be available on svtplay.se after screening tonight.
