On November 13 from 3.10 pm until 3.30 pm you’ll be able to watch the Christmas lights turn on via the internet. This year’s inauguration is purely digital, which is sad in that we won’t be able to attend in person as we have been able to in previous years. However, it is in the interests of public health and we’ll be glad to watch the magic happen regardless.
40 different Christmas lights will be switched on across the city, with TV4’s Tilde de Paula Eby presenting the inauguration. Beautiful atmospheric music will be produced by amazing Swedish singer Sonja Aldén and Trafikborgarrådet Daniel Helldén will be giving the inaugural speech.
This last has been a difficult one for every Stockholmer, with the pandemic stretching on longer than any of us ever hoped it would. So this year we’re glad to see the Christmas lights, and for Stockholmers to get that little bit of festive cheer. You can watch the switch-on of the Christmas lights via the website
