This week at the Current we spent most of our time getting into the Christmas spirit. We also had a chance to make an unforgettable trip to Norway! As always, catch up on what you missed with our Week in Review.

Norway

Norway was our Country of the Week! We delved into the land’s history (including the fearsome Vikings), unique culture, and unbelievable geography. Start your journey into the past HERE.

Our Travel Guide explored the landscape of what is possibly the most beautiful country on earth. The fjords are worth the trip all by themselves, but there’s much more to Norway than that! Plan your trip HERE.

Our Currency Spotlight focused on the Norwegian krone. Since Norway isn’t a member of the EU (and doesn’t use the euro), it’s important to know what you’re getting into before you travel there. Learn more HERE.

Christmas

We started our week of Christmas off by looking into some things you might not know about jolly old St. Nick. There’s a lot more to Santa than you’d expect! Find out what we’re talking about HERE.

Don’t celebrate Christmas on the 25th? With these Jewish traditions, you can still make the most out of your stat holiday! Some of them come from places you might not expect. See them all HERE.

Christmas is a truly global holiday. As a result, it’s not uncommon to see countries putting their own unique spin on the day’s festivities. Check out some Christmas traditions from around the world HERE.

Arguably the most important part of any Christmas celebration is the dinner. While a classic turkey is always nice, have you ever considered trying something new? See how people from different countries fill their bellies HERE.

Headlines

Every week we round up the biggest business stories from around the world in Headlines. This week: Oil prices to rebound slowly, Boxing Day still a big seller, and more HERE.

Looking Ahead

Next week we’re changing gears and heading down to Central America. Beyond that, look for more of the great stories you’ve come to expect!
