The magazine's title is almost certainly "Barnas julehelg" ("The
Children's Christmas Holiday").  It appears in the central Norwegian
library database:

"Title:  Barnas julehelg / Red. av Sofie Voss 	 
Author:  Voss, Sofie
Year:    1919 	 
Printed: Kra :[?]"

Sofie Voss wrote at least 15 Norwegian books, their titles make me
believe most of them was aimed at small children.

- Hvem kan regne? (1910)
- Barnenes bok : julen 1914 (1914)
- Barnenes bok (1916)
- Barnas julehelg (1919)
- Busteper, eller Morsomme småhistorier og pussige billeder (1920)
- Norske kvinders sanitetsforenings virke gjennem 25 aar (1921)
- På landet og i byen: billedbok for små barn (1921)
- Slemme-Guri (1921)
- Kalles eventyrferd: hvad Kalle og Nissen så (1922)
- Snipp Snapp Snute (1926)
- Reisen til månen: billedbok for småbarn (1926)
- Lille-Gull og Store-Søster (1926)
- Harepusenes eventyr (1930)
- Sol-egget (1932)
- Fredrikke Marie Qvam og hennes livsgjerning (1963)


I hope this helps!  If not, please request an answer clarification.

This is also a Scandinavian mag:  A Child's Christmas ... (?)
I would tip for Swedish, but again if there are nouns with capitals,
it iw Danish,maybe even Norwegian.  1919 may have been before the
NOrw. spelling reform.

Don't these two items have any publisher's name or at least a City?
CHristiania would be Norway, name changed to Oslo in 1924.
Value?  No idea, but maybe this info can help

Hi again, I now think this could be Norwegian from having found the
word "belg" in an older text, but can't make sense of its use with
"jule"  = yule, Xmas.
NO direct help with the value.  What's the condition of the item,
important to its value?  Any authors named (my thinking that it may be
a collection of articles, shortstories for youth)?  Artists name for
That could identify the country and influence the value.
Please reply, also in this regard to the other question about Barnenes Juleroser.
That title would be:  The Childrens's Christmas Rose(s), Christmas
rose being a yuletide blooming white flower , not just a figure of
