One funny thing is that the film contains several anachronism songs.

Many things indicates that the movie takes place during WW2.

Most notably a nazi flag. https://t.co/LLKPhxhWGk

When he started the process the voice actors were already done so Åhlin had to adjust his drawings to the voices.

The main character (Karl-bertil Jonsson) was played by a young boy named Per Andrén. And Per Åhlin was inspired by a young Tage Danielsson. https://t.co/ben0yWaYnq

Instead painter Per Åhlin got the assignment to draw the story.

He had made some drawings in 1964 for a special edition of the book. https://t.co/3zD2f2GvbT

In 1975 Svt (Swedish television) wanted to make a movie from Danielssons story. The plan was to make a real movie with real actors but the budget was limited.

The story was written by Tage Danielsson in 1964 and is about a fourteen year old boy who steals Christmas gifts from the wealthy to give to the poor people of Stockholm while working in a post office on Christmas Eve.

Every Christmas eve at 7 pm me and my family gather around the TV to watch 30 minutes of pure Christmas magic. Sagan om Karl-bertil Jonssons julafton (The fairy tale of Karl-bertil Jonsson and his Christmas eve) has been on swedish television since 1975.

Do you know who is my favorite swedish character?

Santa Claus? The Christmas goat? Arne Weise? Ferdinand the bull? No.

My favorite Christmas character is this fourteen year old guy. https://t.co/zmHorj7N1C

However, Lucia and Lucifer have a common root in the Latin word "lux" meaning "light".

And lights and candles are very important in swedish celebrations during December (from advent to new years) because of the darkness. https://t.co/ArjKnQc8E6

According to several sources, "Lusse" derives from Lucifer (ie the Devil). However, when the word "lussekatt" first begins to be used in the late 19th century, it is derived in the same way as eg. "lussebrud" (Lucia bride) it's unlikely that it's derived from Lucifer.

The devil's cat name changed to lussekatter because "lusse" or "lussi" is an alternative prefix instead of "lucia". https://t.co/dBo9UrWxsT

The modern lucia celebration begins to emerge in Sweden in the late 19th century, and it is also then that saffron starts to be used as Christmas sprouts (although in Gothenburg, for example, lussekatter without saffron have been baked). https://t.co/en8lMyGM0W

Jan-Öjvind Swahn writes: "Lussekatter had their counterpart in the cakes that St Nicolaus gave to children, and when his role was taken over by Kinken Jes, he continued with the buns . For some reason, they received the name "duiveskatter" in the low German, = "Devil's cat."

Ok. What about the lussekatter?

It's a sweet S-shaped bun that is flavoured with saffron and raisins.

Traditionally it's eaten around mid December (Lucia Dec 13). https://t.co/dj0RYiIEc6
