  1. There are a few things you could add.

    Go watch Santa Lucia day, it’s soon. All the Swedes will put firey candles on little girls head and watch them sing songs about a woman who was burned alive in Italy.

    Try the Swedish foods, and the festivals surrounding some of them. The crayfish party is my favourite. Lots of schnapps and lots of fish. It makes for a wonderful next day.

    Visit Finland. It’s so close and so different.

    Visit Denmark. Same as above but with more liberal alcohol laws.

    Drink some glug, ’tis the season for it, and it tastes great with ginger-crackers.

    Avoid these biscuits: http://www.blocket.se/vi/50512059.htm

    Join in on the conversations on Thelocal.se. It’s full of trolls and ex-pats who hate each other and the Swedes, but it’s also helpful at times for asking questions.
