Sometime in the summer I did a post about the popular Swedish activity of crowds of people engaging in mass singsongs. These are broadcast live throughout the country from Stockholm famous open air museum, Skansen.
Little did I suspect that they would do the same thing in the dead of December. At night! The pictures below are proof that Swedes don’t seem to bother much about the weather. It is the most consistent topic in the news all year round but at this time it appears to be mostly a guide to which parka to wear because nothing apparently is going to stop Swedes from having their singalong. I find this incredible.
Lisaberg is the amusement park in Sweden’s second largest city, Gothenberg. JulLotta is a play on the words Jul, which means Christmas, and otta, which refers to the morning of the 25th when Swedes get up early and go to church (most likely for the only time of the year). The host’s name is Lotta.
