Nice surprise that Madeleine was there. Did anyone see Chris, or did I just miss him?

Yes, Chris arrived too. They just came in. The king, queen, Victoria and Daniel sit together. Carl Philip, Madeleine and Chris sit on the other side of the door.
I got lucky and can see it from my TV here in Finland - my cable operator gave me as Christmas gift 10 free channels I can watch until 17th January. I chose swedish channels of course, some sports and cultural channels too.

Thanks, all I saw was them getting out of the cars on that narrow street and couldn't tell.
And great little gift. Wish mine would give us something! No chance of that though. Enjoy.

It is interesting to watch this gathering, the program has been quite similar for over 200 years.

A question about the Order of the Polar Star:
Why is the ribbon of the Polar Star of both CG, CP and Daniel black, whilst that of Chris is blue-yellow?
According to Wiki, black ribbon was used before 1975 and currently Chris's version is in use.

Thank you.

Thank you.
The king got his Polar star before 1975. As a rule the Head of State is Grand Master of the country´s orders and holds the highest level of orders.
A quote from a Heraldica forum, someone has written to the Intendent of the Orders:
H. M. Konungen fattade tidigare i våras ett beslut om att prinsarna Carl Philip och Daniel i likhet med honom skall till frack bära Nordstjärneordens kommendörskors i svart band. Detta för att markera denna ordensvärdighets hörande till en riddare av Serafimerorden (liksom Svärdsorden). […] Det svarta bandet markerar den historiska kopplingen.
"HM the King took earlier this spring a decision that princes Carl Philip and Daniel like him should wear to a white tie the Polar Star Order's Cross at the black sash. This is to highlight the dignity of the order belonging to a knight of the Order of the Seraphim (like the Order of the Sword). [...] The black sash marks the historical link."
Heraldica - Forum fr nordiska heraldiker - Ordens-, Dekorations- och Medaljspaningar

Since Chris isn't a member of the official royal family, he uses the Order of the Polar Star with the new sash.

I also enjoyed it very much when I watched it live yesterday, I put it even on my digibox. It is fantastic to see a ceremony which is over 200 years old and hasn't hardly all changed.

You (like I) are no better of than Chris. The poor guy doesn't understand anything too but has to look at least not to bored.

The Royal Court doesn't publish Christmas cards. Last year I found one from the internet, someone had put a card received from the king and queen to the net. I haven't seen a card this year yet. Of course it would be great if they would publish a card...
The Royal Court has published a New Year Greeting with a new photo during the last years.
