Pickled herring is a Swedish specialty that we eat at Christmas, Easter, Midsummer… and so on. There are a lot of different versions of this dish, such as onion herring, mustard herring, curry herring and so on.
If you want me to post more, please submit your ideas.
I have way too much going on right now, and my head is filled with other stuff than typically Swedish things at the moment.
Please submit, it would help a great deal.
First of all I want to say sorry for not updating so much the last couple of weeks… I’ve had some vacation, and spent some time with my relatives… we actually went to Astrid Lindgren’s Värld, along with the “real” Katthult and Bullerbyn. How more Swedish can it get? ;)
Secondly, I want to thank all the new followers for… well… following? Haha. Please suggest more things, it would be awesome if you did.

Sort of like Swedish slang. Such as “like”, “you know”, and “right” in English.
The word “fika” means… well, anything from sitting down in your home with a friend to have a coffee and a cookies, to going out to a café to eat a sandwich.
Technically the same thing as a coffee break, but also so far away from that.
Fika is supposed to be cosy, long and nice. Not just some quick cup of coffee at the local diner.

This is great!! Spread the word, please ;)
Thank you so much!
Oh, if you want to send me some ideas, just go to the “Ask Me” thingy. It could be anything, the smallest thing… non-Swedish people can send ideas too of course, if there’s something you think is typical Swedish.

Any song that has ever been in the Eurovision Song Contest, or any of the out takes for it, is considered to be schlager.
Schlager is a genre, just like pop, rock, punk, grunge and so on… it doesn’t matter what genre the song really is either; if it’s been on ESC, it’s schlager.
In Sweden we’re not allowed to buy alcohol in just any grocery store; you have to go to Systembolaget, or Systemet. This is basically a liquor store, and you have to be 20 years old to be able to buy anything there.
Which is slightly weird, considering you only have to be 18 to be able to get alcohol in bars…
Every man’s right.
This is basically a type of law that you have to follow when you’re out in nature. Every single person who has been a Swedish scout knows what this is.
