The Holidays Begin

By Staff | Dec 1, 2015

The holidays begin with the annual Scandinavian Tea in Emmetsburg.

This annual event is Wednesday, Dec. 2, beginning at 1 p.m. at Bethany Lutheran Church. A variety of Scandinavian breads and sweets will be served in a festive atmosphere by costumed waitresses.

To prepare for this annual event, men and women of Bethany Lutheran Church gather at the church to make lefse. This is one of the favorite, traditional Scandinavian foods served at the tea. Over 20 batches of dough were prepared, rolled and cooked on a hot griddle. Breads and Scandinavian cookies are made at members’ homes prior to the event.

A bake sale, featuring Scandinavian goodies, will also be held at the church.

The Scandinavian Tea is from 1 to 4 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 2.
