The Nobel Price Award Ceremonies

10 Dec

This take part in both Stockholm and Oslo/Norway today. Today is the big ceremony and dinner in the Stockholm City Hall, which will be aired on TV, and like the year before we’re going to watch this on TV and also have our own “celebration” at home, with nice dinner and dressing up a bit. I heard many other Swedes have this as a tradition as well.

This years Nobel Price winners will as expected receive the medal, diploma and documents from our king, King Carl Gustaf XVI, whilst in Oslo the Nobel Peace Price takers will receive theirs from the Chairman of the Nobel Peace Price committee.

Also, this years Nobel Price in Literature will be given to the Swedish poet Tomas Tranströmer. Sweden rules? 😉
