MINNEAPOLIS -- On Christmas morning 102-year-old Pastor William Berg led an old Swedish tradition at the chapel at Augustana Health Care Center in Minneapolis.

The service begins while it is still dark outside on Christmas morning, and ends when the sun comes up.  It is called a Julotta service.

The Swedish liturgical service conducted by Pastor Berg was done using languare from 1917.
