  • Swedish Holidays – Midsommar (Midsummer)

    Hairy Swede
    23 Jun 2015 | 10:40 am
    Size doesn't matter. Every June, Swedes throughout the world gather around a large, green pole and dance and sing and drink. They pretend to be frogs, they pretend to be little old ladies, they pretend to wash clothes and go to church. And they hold hands and skip and dance around the Midsummer pole. Then they eat herring, drink akvavit while singing, hide from the rain, maybe go for a midnight skinny dip in the closest body of water, and if they’re really fulfilling stereotypes, they have sex. All this to celebrate the longest day of the year. Or the shortest night of the year. I…

    Traditions come in many forms and they are constantly changing. They’re the foods we eat at Christmas and the clothes we wear at weddings and the songs we sing at sporting events. They’re also the rituals that we celebrate to acknowledge the passage of time or the moving from one stage of life to the next. And every year around the beginning of June, the streets of Stockholm are filled with tradition. And by tradition I mean honking horns, yelling teenagers, and public intoxication.Freedom... to have to be an adult.By Berit Abrahamsson(Katedralskolan/Berit Abrahamsson)GFDL or CC…

Christ can keep Swedes from working a full week.There he is, Mr. Jesus Christ. There he is, your ideal. The dream of nine million Swedes who are more than secular can come true in Stockholm city.

He’s a nice guy, a creative guy, a writer and an artist and a cook. And, as it so often does, Sweden came up. The weird things about Sweden at least. We talked about all of those little things that Swedes do that make them so very Swedish. Like the silence on the subways. Like the shoes off in the home. Like the well-fitting clothes. Of course, those clothes that fit so well can sometimes fit a little bit too well. Especially when…

  • Going to the Bathroom in Sweden

    Marcus Cederström
    25 Jun 2015 | 10:54 am
    When learning a new language, we don’t always spend too much time on certain vocabulary—like bodily functions. A while back, Katja wrote a post titled The sensitive subject (which isn’t so sensitive in Sweden) where you can learn all kinds of vocabulary about bodily functions. It’s a wonderful list. Now it’s time to expand on that list a bit by focusing on the act of actually finding a bathroom to go to. While pee and poop are not all that stigmatized in Sweden (they have plush toys in the shape of those particular bodily functions and even a children’s show!), as an adult, it’s…

    Every June, Swedes gather to celebrate Midsummer. Actually, they celebrate Midsummer Eve. It’s a time of singing and dancing and even a bit of drinking. That singing and dancing is quite the traditional part of a Midsummer celebration. As is the drinking, actually, but we’ll focus on the singing and dancing for now, just like Anders Zorn did back in 1897 in this famous Swedish painting. Many of the songs that are sung during Midsummer are also sung at Christmas time. Which might seem a bit strange, but both celebrations offer a large green thing to dance around. In June, it’s the…

    We’ve all been there. You’re trying to learn a new language and you’re practicing reading. And then you come across a clump. A clump of numbers that refers to a year. And so the question appears: How do you even say that?! Well, lucky for you, we’ve got a Swedish year guide right here! So, let’s start with the year we’re in right now. That’s 2015. Written out in English, two-thousand fifteen. So how do we say this in Swedish? Simple! We say it in the exact same way: tvåtusenfemton.

  • Talking about specific years in Swedish

    Stephen Maconi
    5 Jun 2015 | 9:11 am
    In English, when you want to say that something happened during a specific year, you say, for example: IKEA was founded in 1943. In Swedish, you express this slightly differently; namely, you leave out the preposition “in”. The same sentences is said in Swedish as this: IKEA grundades 1943. In other words, it would be wrong to say *i 1943. The same goes for if you choose to add the word for “year”, år: IKEA was founded in the year 1943. IKEA grundades år 1943. Notice that the article “the” is not translated into Swedish in this case. In other words, it…
  • Important Swedish verbs: att bli, “to become”

    Stephen Maconi
    1 Jun 2015 | 9:11 am
    Also known as bliva*, the Swedish verb bli is one of the most useful ones to know. It has several uses, but the main meaning is “to become”. (*Bliva is an older variant of the word that you might see in older texts or songs. Bli is the variant used in modern Swedish, so this is the one you should learn.) As you can see in the examples, the present tense of bli is blir. While English has two present tense forms of “to become” – “become” and “becomes” – the Swedish language only has one: blir. In other words, whether it’s jag, du, hon, vi, ni or de, the present…

For as long as I can remember all their vehicles have been painted yellow, cars, trucks and bicycles. So they are very recognizable. But not for much longer. The brain trust in the company have decided to repaint all vehicles, so soon this mail carrier will be riding a blue painted bicycle. It will work so much better.And probably not cost anything at all!

I made them with Dante on a cold and rainy afternoon, and I'm happy to report success. But beware of a few things:1. Don't overbake. It's easy to do, but will result in crisp rather than chewy cookies, and worse, slightly bitter ones. So watch them.2. Space. These cookies need their space. A lot of it. So don't overcrowd them. I say six per baking sheet would be perfect. I tried nine, and ended up with big blobby cookies that ran into one another.3. I've made…
