image: The Start of the Festive Season 2017: SCCE’s Traditional Christmas Party The Start of the Festive Season 2017: SCCE’s Traditional Christmas Party

Marking the start of the Festive Season 2017, SCCE got together for our Traditional Christmas Party on Thursday evening 7 December. Again we could welcome a full house at Park Inn by Radisson Meriton Conference & Spa Hotel in Tallinn.

There is a Swedish poem by Viktor Rydberg, first published in 1881, which describes this time of the year as: “Deep in the grip of the midwinter cold... The snow gleams white on pine and fir,
The snow gleams white on the roofs...
“ However, this was not the case this evening as there was more rain than anything else outside.

Anyhow, the spirit of Christmas was indeed present as we, following the traditions, mingled and were welcomed by a glass of glögg before we sat down and watched Lucia and her procession enter and performing the traditional Swedish Lucia songs and Christmas carols. Just like last year, the procession was composed of Swedish language students from Tallinn’s Gustav Adolfi Gümnaasium.     


On behalf of the SCCE, I would like to thank the team at Park Inn by Radisson Meriton Conference & Spa Hotel for an excellent set up of our Christmas Party and a delicious Swedish Julbord (Christmas Buffet). My thanks also go to Tallink and Västerbottensost who supported us in bringing Swedish Christmas delicacies to the Julbord. And my sincere thanks also go to Eva-Tiina Põlluste and her Swedish language students from Gustav Adolfi Gümnaasium for a beautiful and solemn Lucia performance.

Last but not least, again my thanks go to all our members for creating yet another nice and cozy start of the Festive Season filled with a true touch of a real Swedish Christmas.
