    Being Swedish is a tough challenge nowadays.

    You should not think about anything or say anything. Absolutely not feel anything, and **** you if you are proud of your country. This is called the Jante Law, and is stronger than ever. Sad

    Rant about the Swedish election.

    You may ignore this. * Let's hope the three final letters in the alphabet don't mess up on EP. Att Sverige är ett demokratiskt land är ett riktigt skämt. Har folk röstat på SD så har SD verkligen rätt att tala. Partierna framför trotsallt befolkningens röster och...

    inside out and it drives my husband nuts

    Swedish But Never Been There.

    As far as my geneology goes I'm Swedish. My grandfather came to this country at age 2 on a boat in 1897 so I am second generation. They were poor farmers and settled in the midwest. Back then they took the father's first name and added "son" to it so that is how I wound up with...

    Keepers Of Viking Names

    My first visit to my fathers homeland was when I was just 14. Needless to say Sweden has changed, as the rest of the World. I know it will never be able to still stay neutral in a W/W3 situation. Sweden was the only Empire that ever conquered Russia, and had learned its...

    I am half Swedish. My father is 100% Swedish.

    Both sets of his grandparents came to the US and didn't speak a word of English. They all learned on their own and worked very hard. I am proud of my Swedish heritage. I love to collect dala horses. One day I would like to visit Sweden.
