SLIDESHOW: Fun times at Yulefest

Over the weekend, the Nordic Heritage Museum held it's annual Yulefest, the time of year where Scandinavians gather together in Ballard to celebrate the holidays. Whether it was food, music or all sorts of interesting trinkets, there was something for everyone.

In case you missed it, our photographer Heather Nelson was on the scene with her camera. You can view a slideshow of her photos either by clicking the photo above or looking at the thumbnails below.

If you were wondering, the word "yule" is used for the Christian Christmas in parts of Northern Europe (read, Scandinavia) and German-language speaking areas.
