It is soon Christmas time, and here you see some children waiting to visit the Cathedral.
Today was a perfect day to take a trip in to town. Sunny and cold.
It is up to the parents to say yes or no for their children to attend a church service before Christmas.
Some schools in Stavanger as well as other places in Norway have decided not to use the word Christmas, and instead name it a December event, where they sing the songs but words as Christmas/ Father Christmas have been changed to something "neutral".
Probably difficult to be a teacher to talk about Christmas without using the word....
I guess the discussion will continue also after Christmas this year....
