In Norway there festivities begin weeks before the holiday. The people in norway will start brewing beer (Juleil) this beer is like the beer that the Old Norse would drink in midwinter in the celebration of joulu. This holiday is the festival of lights making the change of winter in to spring. On this day the Vikings would have a toast (skal) and wish each other peace and a good fortune for the next year. In the year of the 900s King Haakon said that all the celebrations would be held to the new celebration that was named Christmas. Before the holiday people would make there decorations and cook pork and seven different flavored cakes. on December 13th is contained the longest night of the year and is also the night of Lussinatten. I like this night because the people from Norway believe all the animals can talk to like goblins, trolls, gnomes and along with the famous one Lossi. The first celebration in Christmas is St. Lucia day. It is the first celebration with light. A little girl dresses up in a white robe and wears a crown of candles on her head
