    For years, I have wanted to attend a Christmas Revels show, but for one reason or another, I have been unable to. Maybe this will be my year!

  3. Katie November 1, 2017 at 5:20 pm #

    We enjoy going to the Nordic house, would love to attend their winter festivities.

  7. AJ November 2, 2017 at 9:15 am #

  8. Chris Webb November 2, 2017 at 9:53 am #

    What a holiday treat!

  9. Erin W November 2, 2017 at 10:06 am #

    Just reading the description of this event brought a smile to my face. Let the mythic journey begin.

  10. Ewa North November 2, 2017 at 1:13 pm #

    I would like to attend because it would be awesome to see some of the Nordic traditions, especially since we have an Au Pair from Denmark! Pick us!!!

  11. JM November 2, 2017 at 1:58 pm #

    I’d revel in this holiday experience and would love to experience it firsthand after hearing about others’ experiences with the shows throughout the years.

  12. Christine November 2, 2017 at 3:07 pm #

    I have just the right little girl in mind.

  16. Troy November 2, 2017 at 5:53 pm #

    Happily read the Almost Perfect Places book about Norway, Finland, Sweden and Iceland. Not able to visit the real thing — so this would be a delightful alternative…

    Wow! This event sounds truly magical and really unlike anything I’ve seen before. I’m currently reading The Nordic Theory of Everything, and falling deeper and deeper in love with Finland. The timing of this event seems serendipitous! Now if only I had tickets…

    We’ve never been and we need some Viking Christmas cheer.

  35. Molly D November 7, 2017 at 12:19 pm #

    This sounds really fascinating– I do love getting into the Christmas spirit but I’d love to be educated about the nordic Christmas traditions in addition to my mostly Italian family traditions.

  36. Katie Atkins November 7, 2017 at 12:36 pm #

    I would love to take my family to this to celebrate the season!

  53. Tina November 8, 2017 at 7:44 pm #

    My son is half Danish. He just returned from Denmark after attending his grandfather’s funeral there. It would be an honor if I won these tickets to take him to this event. It would mean everything to him…
    What a special memory it would be after such a hard loss.

  54. Valerie Thompson November 9, 2017 at 3:37 pm #

    This would make me the best Granny, hands down! I would love to take my grandbabies!!!!

  55. Paula Seid November 9, 2017 at 3:43 pm #

    I’ve never even heard of this fabulous event before. There is no such thing as too many Christmas adventures!
    I’m am one to seek out Christmas shops all year round. My husband and I would treasure this experience.
