SWEDISH MEATBALL DAY!

Sarah

Whether meat, chicken, vegetarian or vegan versions- Swedes love their meatballs! Traditionally served with potato, brown gravy, lingonberries and pressed cucumbers, this meal is a staple in every Swedish household. Therefore it comes as no surprise it has been given it’s own day on August 23rd.

Happy Swedish Meatball Day! ??

HAPPY EASTER!

Happy Easter! ?

Did you know that in Sweden, children usually dress up as witches for Easter? Clad in discarded clothes, colourful headscarves, red-painted cheeks and black freckles, and carrying a basket and occasionally a broomstick; they go from house to house in their neighbourhoods, knocking on doors in hopes of receiving sweets in exchange for their drawings.

Did you know that on each Sunday of Advent leading up to Christmas, Scandinavians gather with their family and friends to enjoy Glögg (mulled wine) and gingerbread cookies? It’s the most magical time of year! ??
