Christmas Movies

We Swedes seems to have a thing about traditional repeating of tv shows. For example we have now seen the same Disney compilation, Kalle Ankas Jul (Donald Duck’s Christmas in Swedish), between 3 and 4 PM every Christmas eve since 1960, seriously!, reclipped every year to have the latest Disney movie trailer at the end. No one really watches it any more, but its a nice time table setter, “we will leave for grandma and grandpas after Kalle Anka ” or “we will start opening presents after Kalle Anka” all according to your family traditions.

11372999So my favourite Christmas movie, is obviously one of those shown every year, this one between Christmas and New Years Eve: Ivanhoe. (the 1982 version)
The thing is I have always seen the story a little different, I focus on the drama between Rebecca of York and Brian de Bois-Gilbert. And I have made a “small” series of clips of how I see it. Spoiler Allert! It might be good to actually have seen the movie/red the book to really understand.

The story of Rebecca and Brian.
By Frida Åberg.
I added some lines, and sorry for the spelling, no spellcheck.

Musikhjälpen = Music Aid is a fundraising event that has existed in Sweden since 2008. They send live around the clock for 144 hours on the radio station P3 and tv station SVT / SVT Play. Together with Radiohjälpen they help draw attention and raise money to a hidden humanitarian disaster; there is a new theme in Musikhjälpen every year.

The theme for this year’s broadcast is “Children in war have the right to go to school.” Read more about this topic.

The program consists of three well-known TV host locked up in a studio, called the glass box, in a square in a Swedish city. This year is the turn of Örebro, December the 12th to 18th with  Kodjo Akolor, Josefine “Little Jinder” Jinder and “Howlin'” Pelle Almqvist from the band The Hives. During the week the hosts will be visited by dedicated people who contribute in different ways to fight for this year’s theme. Performers and famous people come to visit to get involved, and the thing that binds the whole show together is the audience’s song requests that all contribute to the collection.

I look forward to this this great event each year!

Vikings, Santa and Christmas

Interesting facts about us “heathen” Scandinavians. Thats what you get for trying to convince people from cold snowy countries that a warm fiery hell would be something bad!

God Jul = Happy Jul or Merry Christmas.
