There is a Christmas tradition in Sweden that is quite like no other. When 3pm rolls around, on Christmas Eve, the entire family gathers around the television to watch Donald Duck.
The tradition started in 1960 and continues to this day. Family members of all ages get together and watch Disney’s “Kalle Anka och hans vanner onskar God Jul.”
Roughly translated, that means “From All of Us to All of You.”
