Questions by Soni

Q1. Do you have a Christmas tradition? What is it?
Well, since Christmas Eve is the Christmas Day in the Nordic countries…
On TV there are two very short programs – immortal classics – sent every Christmas Eve.
One is the winter saga Tomten – the Swedish Santa dwarf – based on a poem by Viktor Rydberg from 1881:

Tomten (1941) – English subtitles (11 minutes)

The other program is The Declaration of Christmas Peace, sent from the city of Turku in Finland.
