Christmas in Stockholm's Old Town

Radio Sweden Christmas Special

In this festive frenzy of a programme, we have the build-up to the big day, excited Christmas kids, disgruntled goats and a bevy of Christmassy Swedes.

We discover the origins of Sweden’s Christmas traditions and find out why Swedish children get to meet Santa in person.

We talk to the director of the Stockholm City Mission to the homeless to hear how the organisation supports those sleeping rough at Christmas.

We also have a special Christmas message from the entire English team here at Radio Sweden.

”Rudolf Med Röda Mulen”, Anita Lindblom

”Falling In Love (With Christmas Time)”, Moneybrother/Jerry Williams
