Julefest At Ballard First Lutheran Church December 6, 2016


Singing carols and dancing around the tree.  (I’m on the  right wearing the red Norwegian sweater}  This is one of my favorite traditions of Christmas.  Organized every year for the past 38 years by our Norwegian language teacher, Ed Egerdahl.   A service of music and readings followed by traditional Norwegian food and dancing round the tree.
