'20 Days After Christmas' -- Celebrate the festival today in Fairfield
Published 12:06 pm, Saturday, January 14, 2012
The traditional Swedish celebration is planned at 5 p.m. marks the end of the Christmas season. The singers will be joined by the Apollo Singing Society of Hamden, fiddlers and an accordionist.
In keeping with Swedish tradition, a Christmas tree will be plundered, then thrown out, the group said in a news release.
The group first observed the fest in 1966 at Bridgeport Machines. It moved to a church for several years before moving to the Scandinavian Club in 1985.
Donations are $7 at the door, the group said, and children under 12 will be admitted free.
