At our December cultural meeting we were entertained by the Lokensgard Blechblaser Ensemble, a magnificent eight-piece brass orchestra, with a wonderful variety of holiday music. This was followed by children of varying age playing "På låven sitter nissen" and doing traditional singing around the tree accompanied by SAMspill, as well as a sumptuous spread of seasonal goodies. There was also a gift exchange assisted by the julnisse himself.
