The latest episode of the podcast is up! I talk to Melanie from Michigan who is competing to enter a dog sledding race! We also discuss Christmas markets and Swedish julbord (the big Swedish Christmas dinner). Take a listen. Hope you enjoy!
just look up “Life in the Land of the Ice and Snow” wherever you get your podcast!
We celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve and celebrations start with lunch at noon.
Christmas food in Sweden is ham, pickled herring, meatballs, potatoes with anchovies, small sausages and dry crisp bread.
We also drink Julmust, which is a soda is sold only around Christmas time. (Then again at Easter under the name Påskmust). I say it tastes a little like Dr. Pepper.
And of course we can’t forget glögg, which is Christmas spiced wine, served with raisins and almonds at the bottom. I would look up the traditions and meaning behind glögg, but after having a cup, I am now too sleepy to bother.
