Swedish come out for Julmarknad in Andersonville

The Andersonville neighborhood offers a great lifestyle year round. But the Scandinavian feel during the Christmas season is pretty special. The local chamber of commerce also special shopping nights during the holidays.

This year we attended a traditional Swedish celebration, Julmarknad, including a Lucia procession at the Swedish American Museum . The center is located near the intersection of Clark and Foster just a few blocks from my house.

A market area was set up for shopping, traditional food and entertainment.

Sharing traditional food with my family and au pair (from Sweden!).

They even feature a Children's Museum. Ryne does chores in the "Old World" then gets on a boat to America.
