An annual event, the Christmas Bazaar at the Swedish Church on Manhattan must not be missed. Nordstjernan was there and ran into a bunch of old friends. Glögg, lussebullar, pepparkakor or a plate of food for the really hungry guests. Then some shopping for tomtar, candlesticks, Christmas ornaments, Lucia-kronor, table runners, goat cheese, coffee bread, limpa bread, chocolate, sweets.... You name it, there's a good reason to head to the Swedish Church for their annual Christmas Bazaar, which runs for three hectic days in November and turns the church into a virtual Christmas card, all red and cozy. Friday had 980 visitors, Saturday 884 and Sunday 270 had visited just around 3 pm. What makes the affair go around is great personnel at the church and a whole lot of wonderful volunteers. Nordstjernan met and spoke to some of them.
