(YULE-eh-BE-en) is Norwegian for "Christmas Village". It refers to a
special time of celebration and gathering in which towns and villages
come alive with lights, music and crafts just before Christmas. The
village of Knife River, Minnesota (settled by Norwegians in the 1800's)
keeps this tradition alive in the United States. Come visit us, enjoy the celebration and take the warm glow
of Julebyen with you.
