Celebrating Tjugondedag Knut Day

January 16, 2011
By Bonnie C. Schnars

I am writing in regards to the article in the Family Section of The Post-Journal on Jan. 12 entitled ''Tjugondedag Knut Day, A Swedish Tradition: What is It?'' I was pleased to see the article as Gerald Haglund was a good family friend, as I remember, growing up. Helen and Jennie Vimmerstedt were my great-great aunts and this holiday was celebrated every year in their home. Many Swedish people have no idea what it is, but I can assure you, in our family it is very real and still celebrated. The location has changed, which can not be disclosed, but we still gather on Jan. 13 every year, or very close to that day.
