Barnens Julkalender. Minneapolis: Minneapolis Veckoblad Pub. Co., 1908.
[The Children’s Christmas Annual. Minneapolis: Minneapolis Weekly Pub. Co., 1908.]
This children’s Christmas serial was published from 1900 through, earliest, 1910 by the newspaper Minneapolis Veckoblad. Much like the Covenant Anatola and the Lutheran Vid Juletid, the Barnens Julkalender featured short stories, bible stories, poetry and games. The cover illustration recalls a family's early Christmas morning sleigh ride to the traditional church service known as julotta.
The Christmas magazine shown above is part of the exhibition Jul and Yule: Swedish and Swedish-American Christmas Serials on display outside the Archives in the lower level of Brandel Library through February 2012.
