Lidstrom’s Christmas Style

from Patricia Montemurri of the Detroit Free Press,

“Our tradition is we celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve,” says Lidstrom, standing in his family’s two-story living room, its walls covered in a pebbled golden wallpaper that warms the room. “The kids are waiting by the windows for Santa and we watch him walking down the street with a gift bag over his shoulder.”

Says Annika: “I can still feel, you know, a little bit of the excitement over it from when I was a child.”

On Christmas Eve, Santa will chat with the boys.

Perhaps he’ll eat a Christmas confection prepared by Annika or Lidstrom’s mother, Gerd Lidstrom, who is visiting for the holidays along with Lidstrom’s father, Jan Erik Lidstrom. There will be ham and Swedish meatballs and herring.
