This party is usually held on “Tjugondag Knut” which means “twenty days after Knut” which is the 13th of January. This day is named after saint Knut Lavard. He was a danish prince that was murdered by the swedish king. He lived during the 12th century and was one of the must popular saints in Scandinavia during that time. In some parts of Sweden you also dress up as “Knutgubbar” and wears masks and go around and beg for candy.
From the beginning we decorated the Christmas tree with apples, ginger cookies, sugar candy and so on. When it was time to take away the Christmas decorations we ate all the goodies and then threw out the tree. And then the Christmas was over.
Nowadays we celebrate this day to say goodbye to Christmas. We play games, do the “fishing pond”, have lottery and dance around the Christmas tree. These kinds of parties are held in homes, schools and other community spaces.
