An Indigenous Song Celebrates Nature in Sweden "My Sámi roots are important to me; I'll never give up fighting for them". Anna Karstedt "When I'm out in nature I sing what I see," Anna says as she slowly slips into her yoik. A kind of chant, the yoik is the instinctive musical expression of the Sámi people and is used to remember and express one's emotions about individuals, animals and landscapes. "When I'm happy the yoik is happy," Anna adds. The yoik differs from a traditional song in an important aspect; it employs rhythm instead of words to convey the essence of its subject. Anna learnt to 'yoik' in school at the age of ten and has since toured all over Sweden performing for audiences. For Anna yoiking has been a way of learning and preserving her Sámi heritage. "Every time I yoik I feel that my link to the Sámi way of life becomes stronger" she says. The Sámi are the indigenous people of Sweden. Their rugged and harsh surroundings have produced a truly unique way of life. Anna's grandmother, who only speaks Sámi, has been a crucial link to Sámi culture and way of life. Her grandmother lives in a small Sámi village called 'Rensjon' (Reindeer Lake) which Anna says is her most favorite place on earth.

Midsummer is one of the major celebrations in Scandinavia, together with Christmas Eve, New Year's Eve and Walpurgis Night.
The most popular festival together with Christmas
Midsummer is the most popular festival in Scandinavia together with Christmas. It is a celebration of the Summer solstice, the longest day of the year. In Sweden and in Finland, Midsummer is celebrated as a public holiday during the third weekend of June, when everybody escapes to the country to spend a relaxing time in nature. The celebration of the Summer solstice is a very ancient practice, dating back to pre-Christian times. Midsummer was originally a fertility festival with many customs and rituals associated with nature and with the hope for a good harvest in the Autumn. Midsummer's Day was later christianized as the day of Saint John the Baptist, an important Christian saint. Yet, many of the ancient pre-Christian customs that marked the Summer solstice have survived to this day and are still being celebrated in Scandinavia as they were many hundreds of years ago.

Germany's Walpurgis and the Nordic celebration of Spring
Each year, in the evening of April the 30th, Swedes and Finns celebrate Saint Walpurgis, one of the most popular festivities during the year alongside of Christmas and Midsummer. Walpurgis Night receives the name of "Valborg" in Sweden and "Vappu" in Finland, and is a very lively celebration where people spend the night together and sing traditional songs to welcome spring. The Walpurgis tradition is commonly associated with the feast of Anglo-German Saint Walpurgis. Walpurga was a woman born in England in 710. She went to live to Württemberg in Germany, where she became a nun and abbess in the convent of Heidenheim. Walpurgis was made a saint on the 1st of May 779, around the same dates than Scandinavians celebrated the return of Spring and the worshipping rituals of fertility associated with that season. With the conversion of the Swedes into Christianity, and since the time of year was the same, the Pagan and Christian celebrations became mixed together and resulted in the Walpurgis Night celebration.

67. American West - European Emigration
They became the cradles of SwedishAmerican culture with characteristics different from both America and sweden. In the midst of such an enclave it was easy
Swedish emigration to America is rather typical for European emigration westward to America during the 19th century. Therefore, we have elected to present the background of the Swedish emigration at that time. Painting "The Emigrants" by Swedish artist Knut Ekwall, (1843-1912). This painting depicts the artist's vision of what the Atlantic crossings could be like for the immigrants. Courtesy by Lena Björk Kaplan, President of the American Scandinavian Foundation in New York, owner of this beautiful work.
A Review of Swedish Emigration to America The history of Swedish emigration to America goes further back in time than that of the United States. Swedes started to come in 1638, just eighteen years after the landing of the "MAYFLOWER." The tidal wave of Swedish emigration began in the mid 1840s, when the first organized emigrant groups started to arrive in New York. These farmers destined to Iowa and Illinois were followed during the period up to 1930 by almost 1.3 million countrymen. The Swedes still rank number seven among the European immigrant groups. In proportion to the population of their home countries, only the British Isles and Norway surpassed Sweden in the number of immigrants. The effect of this exodus from Sweden reached its climax around 1910, when 1.4 million Swedish first and second generation immigrants were listed as living in the U.S. Compare this to Sweden's population at the time: 5.5 million. Roughly one fifth of all Swedes had their homes in America right before World War I !

Workplace Culture Guide: Sweden Part 1 in a 2-Part Series by David Speeckaert
Monster Contributing Writer
Sweden is a land of many attractions, known for its stunning landscape, beautiful people, old-world customs and progressive social policies. For someone unfamiliar with the culture, it can be difficult to work and live there, but if you follow the tips in this two-part guide, you'll be well on your way to enjoying all that Sweden has to offer. Part 1 focuses on what to expect in the typical Swedish workplace, while Part 2 takes you inside the Swedish lifestyle for a look at food, entertainment and etiquette. Your American Ways Americans are generally met with interest. Throughout the past century, American culture has had a significant influence. Many Swedes enjoy our movies, TV shows, classic cars, music, the rags-to-riches dream, and our spirit and creativity. However, the recent actions of the US government in Iraq and elsewhere have had an adverse effect on the feelings of many, if not all, Swedes. Typically, Swedes will greet you with hesitation as they try to sort out what kind of American you are. It's probably best to be generally clueless and to avoid speaking about politics unless you are on closer terms. And it's usually advisable not to brag, as Americans are somewhat notorious for that in comparison to Swedes, who look down on boasting and tend to be more reserved.

Lifestyle Culture Guide: Sweden Part 2 in a 2-Part Series by David Speeckaert
Monster Contributing Writer
Once you've settled into a new job in Sweden , you will want to explore the many diversions this country has to offer. And whether you're looking for an authentic Swedish experience or something as familiar as a meal at T.G.I. Friday's, you can find it. Part 2 of our guide to Sweden gives an overview of Swedish tastes and etiquette to help you navigate the social scene like a native. Entertainment Outdoor activities are popular in Sweden. Cross-country skiing, bandy (like field hockey on ice) and hockey are the big winter sports. In warmer weather, soccer is king, but many also enjoy tennis, basketball and equestrian events. Sweden's city nightlife is usually quite lively. The major cities boast many bars and clubs. Unfortunately, some have restrictive entrance policies that can bar you from entering based on factors like your age (even if you are above the drinking age), your gender or your apparent non-Swedish country of origin. But there are other places where you can have a wonderful evening. Drinks are expensive, however, often costing the equivalent of $5 or $6 for a beer and $30 for a bottle of wine. Food and Drink Swedes love to entertain and don't need a special occasion to plan a dinner party. In keeping with Swedes' relatively healthy eating habits, Swedish supermarkets offer a variety of meats, vegetables, grains and dairy products commonly found in the US.

The home pages for the Usenet newsgroup soc.culture.nordic Lysator
These pages try to answer many questions foreigners to the Nordic countries could have. However, we have no intention what-so-ever to cover "all" questions. Basically, you here find topics which have been regular questions in the Usenet newsgroup S OC .C ULTURE .N ORDIC The contributions to these pages are made by the Usenet participants during the years, which make them less coherent than sites produced by a single person. The good thing is that different Nordic opinions often are represented.
Soc.culture.nordic FAQ
The Frequently Answered Questions (FAQ) document from the Usenet newsgroup S OC .C ULTURE .N ORDIC is a very good source of information about the Nordic countries As it was made available to the Internet in 1994, and web-ified in 1996, it was perhaps the best one. Today there are governmental sites which without questions are better in the sense that they cover the topics more completely and evenly. (See below for links to these governmental sites.) The niche of this FAQ is such topics which are commonly misunderstood by foreigners, and those topics which are commonly disputed inbetween Nordic people, although the first requirement to include a topic here is that some kind of consensus is established among (a large majority of) the participants of the newsgroup. Accordingly Finland's Civil War (1918) and Continuation War (1941-1944) are topics not yet covered. Note that the S OC .C

How to tell if you're Swedish
by Anders Janson Another response to my How to Tell If You're American page.
If you're Swedish...
  • You are familiar with a number of American TV shows, because it's cheaper to buy that stuff than to produce domestic originals. You normally prefer British TV and film productions to American, though.
  • Hem till byn is a series that has been around since the 70's, not running continuously but appearing again every decade with an update. Nilecity 105,6" (mHz) was a rather avant garde 90's comedy series. Cleo , another comedy series, is running now. Danish films and TV series are often well made, and suit your temperament.
  • You know how (association) football is played: with a round ball, of course. Ice hockey is not unheard of. If you are male, you can argue intricate points about the rules.
  • You get at least five weeks of vacation a year.
  • You will make your peace with God and repent on your deathbed, but not before. You are not unlikely to believe in God in a loose sort of way, but atheism is common. You are nominally Protestant, belonging to the recently (2000 A.D.) disestablished national church of Sweden, or you could be a Free Baptist, Methodist, Pentecostal or Jew and then you would probably care more about it. Or you belong to an immigrant minority, in which case you would be Moslem or Catholic and possibly devoutly religious.
