The entry title is the name of a Norwegian carol that my husband and I will be singing this morning at our worship in our church. It is a lovely welcome to a beautiful 2 days. In today’s FORUM, both Jack Zaleski and Matthew Von Pinnon (new editor) have essays that re-live special memories for them. I am glad they shared it with the FORUM readers today. Since it is a busy day, I simply wish all of you a most Merry Christmas with your families and friends. I’ve got to get going and pre-pare a piece of fresh salmon that Buffaloguy caught and brought home from Alaska in September, get the Swedish meatballs into a crockpot, peel potatoes—–it is a joy to anticipate our children and grandchildren coming here later this afternoon!!
