"Jul i skomakergata" is a series that has often been broadcasted here in Norway since it was made in 1979. For us it is one of our most deeply treasured television-classics that just about everyone loves to see. I saw it for the first time around 1986, and I saw it again last Christmas. It just is such a brilliant series, with great memorable characters and a kind of atmosphere which really gets us in a Christmas-mood. Perfect!
