27 julebukk (640x296)

Al dressed up as julebukk, hope to get some sweets and cookies from the neighbours. Julebukk is an old nearly extinct tradition of dressing up and asking for cookies and candies. You could “go Julebukk” between Christmas day and New year.  (Kind of like Halloween, but without the “trick” part – no punishment for not giving away cookies/candies, but it was shameful if you didn`t have anything to share –  Christmas was (and is) a feast. It was also common that the ones dressing up, would sing christmas songs to whoever opened the door.
