Velkommen Jul TODAY

submitted by

Velkommen Jul is the Norwegian celebration of welcoming in the winter solstice and holiday season. It translates to “Welcome Christmas.” Catchy, eh?

So how DO you Vekommen Jul here at Augsburg? Easy:

Enjoy complimentary Norwegian treats in the Commons including waffles, lefse and a lunch buffet from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Wear your Norwegian sweater or bunad – find one at a thrift store!
Shop at the holiday boutique downstairs while enjoying some music
Worship with Norwegian music in the Hoversten Chapel at 10:40 a.m. for the annual Velkommen Jul services

Everyone is welcome to enjoy the sights, smells, and sounds of this campus-wide tradition and share in a piece of Augsburg’s heritage.
