We have a nice Christmas TV-tradition in Sweden, every year since 1960, they've sent 'Julkalendern' - a daily TV-show for children, each day from 1st of December up until Christmas Eve. A way of keeping them entertained all through that long wait I guess.
Each year it's a different theme, and it's always discussed whether this year is better than last year, enough Christmassy, enough snowy etc...
This year, the 'Julkalendern' was called 'Hotell Gyllene Knorren', and it seemed to be a success, both amongst TV critics and with my kids.
While we were in Sweden, the kids watched it religiously every morning at 06.45 - or (when they finally got over the jet lag and started sleeping in a bit) at the evening show at 18.45.
So, when we left on the 19th of December to go back home, it caused a bit of a problem because how would we now find out how it all ended?!
Well, SVT play is the thing! The kids (and me too) have been catching up on the missed episodes thanks to the internet, cool!
