The final proof that you are popular is that you were a Christmas host on Sweden’s Television. This year, it will be Babben Larsson who gets to light the candle and announce Donald Duck, and thus keep the Swedish people company during Christmas Eve. The Christmas host in SVT has existed for over 60 years as a recurring feature on Christmas Eve, and last year the role was taken on by TV chef Tareq Taylor.

Babben Larsson was born on Gotland and has a solid background in theatre, stand-up and various television productions. Among other things, she has appeared in programs such as “Parliament”, the Christmas calendar and is currently featured in, among other things, “Bäst i test”. During the press conference, Babben Larsson describes the Christmas hosting as “a mission of honor” and highlights that Christmas should not be “a festival of stress.” She believes that it should not be too perfect and that it is important that Christmas is accessible to everyone. “For those who do not have a context on Christmas Eve, I will be there and be company.”
