Norway is not particularly known for their celebration of St. Knut’s Day, but some do celebrate the Swedish tradition there and sing their own songs dedicated to St. Knut. Their rhyme goes “Sante Knut og jaga jula ut” which translates into “St. Knut chases Christmas away.” Norwegians choose to toss the tree out the back door (sometimes even down a fjord), rather than throwing the tree out the window like the Swedes tend to do. There are even signs located at different hills and fjords clarifying if you are allowed to throw your tree in those areas. Chopping the Christmas tree into pieces for firewood is a common occurrence, giving the tree a second purpose. In addition to cutting apart and burning the tree, some families choose to use parts of the tree for carving and whittling: some may carve ornaments or create new tree toppers for the next year’s tree, others make kitchen utensils and household knickknacks.
