Placeholder Image
ARGYLE - UW-Madison folklorist Jim Leary will present "Life in Lafayette: Julebukking in Southwest Wisconsin" at 7 p.m. Nov. 16 at Central 52, 300 E. Milwaukee St. Julebukking or "Christmas fooling" is an old Norwegian custom widely practiced and still remembered in the Argyle area and beyond. A rowdier grown-up version of Halloween, it involved disguises, winter house visits and more. Leary will offer an illustrated glimpse of this tradition, and invites local julebukkers to share stories, photos and disguises from their own experience.
