The Lemurian Abbey is a jewel in the Lemurian crown and is the setting for carols.

Christmas at Rivesleigh

Introduced into Sweden from Germany, the Christmas tree has been a part of Christmas in Sweden since the 1700s. It was not until well into the last century that the custom became general, however. Nearly every Swedish household now brings in a tree one or two days before Christmas and decorates it with sparkling objects, gaily wrapped candies, glass bulbs and other small trinkets, many made of straw. The tree is also adorned with lights - usually electric these days, although some still use stearin candles.

Lighted trees outdoors have become increasingly common, and every town and village decorates a community tree
