For years, the Heritage Center has put on this fun Christmas festival where we celebrate with Norwegian crafts and food. Last year, we couldn’t be together in person, but we had a great time celebrating Christmas with you virtually through a series of videos. We aren’t sure what this next year will be like, but no matter what we look forward to celebrating Juletrefest together!
