Swedish traditions – old and new

sweat_drops

Swedish traditions are firmly rooted in history, yet constantly changing. Others are new imports that Swedes have embraced with open arms.

Swedish food tends to be influenced by the seasons. The way it is spiced and cooked often reflects the storage needs of the peasant communities of the old days, as in the case of pickled herring, freshly salted or smoked meat, or dairy products that have been curdled, boiled or left to mature. Several of Sweden’s traditional festivities are linked to the farming year - to spring tillage, to the hunting and fishing season or to harvest time.
