Christmas scene from the 19th century - Eksharad farmhouse, Skansen, Stockholm
Sweden

The Ekshärad farmhouse (Ekshäradsgården) was built in the 1820s in the parish of Ekshärad in Värmland. The large, two-storey building evidently comes from a district which was rich in building timber and where there was plenty of wood to burn for heating. On account of its size the building was known locally as The Manor.


The farmhouse was built by the crown’s district legal officer Jan Olof Pallin and it served as the local court as well as the enlistment office of the Värmland Regiment. The inventory made on the decease of J.O. Pallin’s widow shows that the farm was large and prosperous.

In 1854 Per Larsson, the district judge, moved into the manor with his family and it is his home that has been reconstructed at Skansen. The entrance hall is marbled in black and green. From the hall one enters the kitchen with its splatter-painted plastered walls and large cast-iron cooking stove.

Today the Ekshärad farmhouse is open for visitors during summer and Christmas.

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
