Norwegian Christmas

Norwegian Christmas

A most welcome break of light in the dark winter season, Christmas is Norway’s favorite holiday.

Christmas in Norway is a holiday filled with traditions, lots of secrets and a touch of magic. Did Nissen (Santa) finish the risgrøt (Christmas porridge) that was left on the doorstep last night, for him to eat? Will Nissen show up with gifts this year? And will there be snow on Christmas Eve?

Christmas is the season for spending time with family and loved ones, enjoying delicious, home-made traditional foods, cookies, desserts and snacks. The food and drinks enjoyed in Christmas, such as ribbe (pork ribs), pinnekjøtt (lambs/sheeps ribs), riskrem (riz à l'amande), multekrem (cloudberry cream), gløgg (warm spiced wine) and pepperkaker (gingerbread cookies), are allowed for Christmas only, perhaps due to their non-diet friendly qualities!

Christmas is also the holiday for decoration, for creating the heart-warming coziness that all Norwegians love. Families bring out their most beautiful china, glassware and ornaments, often products that have been in the family for generations.

At Hadeland glassverk, we make products that last. Some of our glass series have brought Christmas delight to families since 1917, and are still shining just as bright! Explore our Christmas series here.

At the glassworks of Hadeland, Norwegian Christmas traditions may be enjoyed from early November until December 23rd. Thousands of Christmas lights will be lit, go on a sleigh ride, explore the Christmas markets and by all means, do have a cup of gløgg! Join our Christmas universe and visit us at Hadeland!
