Now i am going to tell you a little about the celebrations here in sweden.
The one that is coming up now is called valborg. Then we have a big bonfire
and sing songs. We have the bonfire to scare the winter away. Lame, huh?
Next big celebration is midsummer. Then we all dance around a big pole with flowers on it and
leaves on it. It has like 2 rings between it. It is supposed to be shaped like a swedish gods
penis. Disgusting!!!! We have big partys then and sing and dance and have picnics outside with the family. It is really fun!I think that is my favorite celebration. Haha!!!!!!!!!! Lol!!!!!!!
Anyways, the next big one is halloween. Well, that sweden got from america i think but we still celebrate it. I guess everyone who reads this already knows what halloween is about, right? Right!
Next one is christmas of course. Then we all dance around the christmas tree. We get presents and have partys and we bake gingerbake cookies. Mhmmm...i just luvvv gingerbread cookies. In swedish gingerbread cookies are 'pepparkakor'. Then comes valentines day when we all send valentine cards to out loved ones. After that one comes easter. Then we paint eggs, and go on egghunts. We also dress up as old ladys that are supposed to be olden days witches, and go out on the neighbour hood to get candy or money. For exchange we give them easter cards that we made. That i all i can tell you now. I know that there are loads of more traditions in sweden but right now i came up with these. If you like celebrations..come to sweden!!! (or india that has loads of festivals) Lol!!!!!!!!!!!!
You probably wonder now who i am, dont you?
Well, i am sara elisabeth welander. I am 12 years old and come from Sweden. I live outside swedens capital city stockholm, in the countryside. I live in a house on a hill facing a large field and a lake. It is soooo beautiful here so you know. I am CRAZY about cats but am sadly allergic to them :( I like skiing, playing the piano, dancing, swimming, climbing, singing, traveling, chatting etc. I hate insects and war. And strange enough, i am a little picky. Haha!!!!!!!!! Lol!!!!!!!!!11
My favorite food is spaghetti bolognese. I LOVE italy!!!!!! My favorite color is turqoise (the color of the sea(i think)) And i am moving to malta this year for 3 years. Yes, i am moving to malta and i CAN'T wait. I love being with my friends and family. It is the best thing ever. I love traditions and celebrations. And of course i LOVE cooking. Now i have said a load about myself. It is getting quite boring now, ain't it? Oh yea, i almost forgot. I am half american and half swedish, half christian and half jewish. I think that is all that you have to know now! Welcome to my blog!!!!!!!!!
