King Knut is known for declaring that Christmas should be celebrated for a full 20 days with no fasting. Days filled with feasting and celebrating.
After the 20 days of Christmas, on the 13th of January, the Christmas season ends with a special “going away” party called Julgransplundring (the plundering of the Christmas tree) and incorporates song, dance, and sweets to eat. After the tree is plundered, it is removed from the house.
Lindsborg is making plans to have its own King Knut celebration on Saturday, Jan. 13. Stay tuned to Visit Lindsborg to find out what’s in store. Keep the Christmas lights burning and end the joy-filled season in Lindsborg!
