Excerpt from Christmas in Norway

Some families create home-made advent calendars with chocolates, sweets or even small toys behind each window.

But perhaps the best-known julekalendar isn't based on chocolates at all. It is run by state broadcaster NRK.

A tradition stretching back to 1979, NRK broadcasts a specially made show each day throughout December. Although aimed primarily at children, watching the shows together as a family has become the norm.

In recent years there's been a tendency to repeat series, but Christmas 2014 has its own new series called The King of Christmas, all about the adventures of nine-year-old Kevin, who discovers a hidden valley peopled by a community of knights. Reviewers have compared the show to the magic of Harry Potter and Narnia.
