This Sunday, November 27, Japan’s contingent of SWEA — the worldwide non-profit organization for Swedish and Swedish-speaking women — will once again gather Tokyo’s international community for the annual (and amazing) Swedish Christmas Bazaar!

The bazaar will offer visitors the unique chance to taste delicious Swedish foods, get into the festive mood with a warm cup of glögg (mulled wine), and shop for handicrafts, such as the traditional Swedish Santa decorations made of wood and wool. There will also be Swedish folk music and a performance by Lucia, the Queen of Light. Don’t miss the chance to win fantastic prizes in the grand raffle! By joining the event, you will also be supporting Tohoku, as all proceeds will go toward the rebuilding of the disaster-stricken area in the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami.
