Cinnamon Bun Day

It’s Cinnamon Bun Day in Sweden. Why do we celebrate? I don’t know. It’s so depressing heading toward winter so this is about all we have to look forward to this week. Maybe we need to eat a bunch of cinnamon buns to build up our warm layer of fat to get through the next warm months.

Sweden has a lot of food holidays. I thought I’d look up a few more. Here’s what I found just for the month of October, though I have to admit, these don’t seem to be as celebrated as today’s Cinnamon Bun Day. I’ve never seen advertisements at the bus stops for Shrimp Sandwich Day, but maybe I just didn’t notice.

  • October 7 is Gräddtåtans dag (Cream cake day)
  • October 14 is Shrimp Sandwich day. No thanks.
  • October 15 is apparently Feta Cheese day
  • October 18 is Chocolate Muffin day (Why isn’t this a bigger thing?!)
  • October 25 is World Pasta Day. I can get on board with that.

  3. The one time I visited Sweden I was inordinately excited to sample the pastries at the Swedish 7-11. I’m passionate about trashy gas station food and they somehow managed to class up the pastries. There was an amazing one with pistachio cream, I remember. Love the cinnamon buns and that they get their own day!
