Weekend Watch: Tjugondag Knut

Scandinavian or not, you can help the Swedish Cultural Heritage Society of the Red River Valley say “bye-bye” to Christmas at its Tjugondag Knut celebration this weekend. Tjugondag Knut is the day when the Swedish traditionally throw out the tree and mark the end of the Christmas season. There will be singing, dancing and (of course) food, including a traditional dish of the season, pea soup. Plus the kids get to plunder the candy hung on the tree. The event kicks off at 4 p.m. Sunday at the Fargo Depot Senior Center, 701 Main Ave. Freewill offerings will be accepted. Call (701) 293-7230 for more information. – J. Shane Mercer
