Swedish friend is visiting for 6 days during Hanukkah/Christmas. Where is the best holiday experience?

Okay, now tell me about how Epiphany, Ascension, Pentecost, and All Saints' Day are continuations of ancient pagan traditions (I'll give you Easter - I don't know what it's like in Scandinavia, but it's pretty pagan in a lot of countries).

Also - tell me about how Julkrubba is a continuation of ancient pagan traditions and has nothing to do with the birth of Jesus.

And how many Swedes are named Peter, Paul, Thomas, or Christian?

I'm not trying to dunk on anyone, though I think that people from modern secularized countries should realize the religious background that permeates their culture even if they or the majority of their country purports not to be religious.
