Glædelig jul!

The Danish Seaman’s Church on Willow Street threw its annual Christmas fair over the weekend, toasting the holiday season Scandinavian style with food, drink, and gifts. Founded in the late 1800s to serve sailors and immigrants from Denmark, the church has been throwing the yuletide shindig for more than three decades. This year Plymouth Church on Hicks also got involved, opening up its doors for Danish festivities on Saturday.
