A Scandinavian Christmas


Published:

The countdown is on! For those celebrating Christmas, amazingly, it's only ten days away.

While you're planning, shopping, and working your way down that holiday To Do list, we thought one of you (Swedish, anyone?) would appreciate this book: Swedish Christmas Traditions, A Smorgasbord of Scandinavian Recipes, Crafts, and Other Holiday Delights. The author, Ernst Kirchsteiger, is a television personality in Sweden, and this is the first time her recipes, decorations, and holiday tips have been translated to English.

To enter to win, please tell us your favorite holiday tradition below, whether Scandinavian or not. And congrats to last week's Foodista cookbook winner, JESS!

Submissions accepted until Friday, Dec. 17, 2010, 8 a.m.
