Whether you’re entertaining guests or being entertained on Thanksgiving day, stop in at the annual Julejentenes Christmas Bazaar at the Norwegian Lutheran Memorial Church (Minnekirken) at 2614 N. Kedzie Avenue on Saturday, November 21 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. to pick up Norwegian cookies and breads to wow your guests or your Thanksgiving hosts.  If sweets aren’t your thing, crafts will also be available to purchase, or just go to enjoy a bowl of hearty pea soup and buy a raffle ticket.  The bazaar is a fundraiser for the last remaining Norwegian language church in Chicago.
