The annual Christmas Luncheon is the highlight of the year for our members and the business community that we serve. This event attracts 150 guests each year and is a great way to celebrate cherished Swedish Christmas traditions with business associates, family and friends.
Featuring a traditional Swedish Lucia procession, Swedish food and beverages as well as exciting raffles and silent auctions, this exclusive event combines a festive holiday spirit with a great opportunity to socialize, network and build business connections.
In true Christmas spirit, you will enjoy warm Swedish-style mulled wine, “Glögg,” and a smorgasbord of other Swedish Christmas delicacies, beautifully presented by Chef Pelle. Entrees will include homemade meatballs with lingonberries, honey mustard glazed Swedish Christmas ham, baby green salad with fresh pears & candied pecans, home pickled herrings & potatoes, cinnamon apple spiced red cabbage, fresh fruit, bread & cheese… and of course, the all-time-favorite – “Jansson’s Temptation”!
Towards the end of the festive meal, a Lucia procession will make its way through the room in celebration of the arrival of light in the dark season – a concert of much loved Lucia songs… “Into our dark house she comes, bearing lighted candles, Saint Lucia, Saint Lucia!”
