Swedish Winter 2022

Organised by Consulate General of Sweden in Hong Kong

Let’s enjoy Swedish Winter together! In winter time in Sweden, the landscapes are snow-covered, and the lakes are frozen. The warmth and lights of the indoors bring Swedes together to celebrate the calm and joy of the season. “We hope to bring a sense of Swedish winter and to share some of our traditions with people in Hong Kong,” says Per Augustsson, Consul General of Sweden to Hong Kong.

With a focus on sustainability, The Consulate General of Sweden in Hong Kong, the Swedish Chamber of Commerce, and Business Sweden are together hosting this year's "Swedish Winter" at K11 Art Mall Piazza & Atrium, Tsim Sha Tsui on 25-26 November (Friday and Saturday). Swedish Winter 2022 is a rare opportunity for everyone in Hong Kong to experience traditional Swedish winter activities. It's free admission and everyone is welcome to join with family and friends!

Lucia comes with light in her hair!
Lucia brings light to the winter darkness. As a traditional Swedish Lucia event usually celebrated on 13 December, there will be a candle-carrying choir dressed in traditional white gowns. On both days, you will have the opportunity to listen to the angelic Lucia choir singing.

Creative Studio (Christmas Ornament and Wreath Making)
Winter is a time when the Swedes set their creativity free and make all kinds of Christmas crafts. This year, we will celebrate this festive time with rainbow-colored decorations. Why? Sweden is a country that strives to protect and enhance the LGBTQI+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer) community so that everyone in society enjoys the same rights and opportunities. Thus, we have specially designed 10 Christmas decors with rainbow colors to echo Sweden’s initiatives and policies. Make your unique Christmas wreath while celebrating diversity with us this Christmas!

Winter sport: Curling

At this exhibition & reading corner, parents can relax, read, play and have fun with their children. What’s more? There will be bilingual storytelling sessions; every child loves it - don't miss it!

Volvo Make A Wish
Volvo, a world leader in safety technology and sustainable innovation, is happy to present their new pure electric SUV - XC40 Recharge Pure Electric. The vehicle will be on display for everyone to experience. You can also write a post card on site to Santa Claus with your Christmas wishes, and enjoy free local postal service!
