Wednesday Word: Julebukking

Julebukking - noun.

Julebukking is a Scandinavian tradition that you too may have also learned about through a Facebook post. It sounds similar to Halloween in North America--celebrants go door to door wearing costumes and masks. Sometimes the visitors sing and receive candy.

According to Wikipedia, the tradition may have originated in Norway during pre-Christian pagan times.
