Today is Christmas Day and that is the big one in Sweden, to celebrate I rounded up our greatest hits about Swedish Christmas food, enjoy!
Swedish Christmas is celebrated today on the 24th of December. Unlike the US for us the big one is the 24th. That’s when we get visited by Santa and hang out with the family.
We will be doing more or less the same thing the coming days as well but today is the big one. As you probably know I collected a small series of different Swedish Christmas Foods here at Ateriet. Since today is the day I figured it would be a great day to round up a few of these posts. You’ll find the link to each post in the title.
Enjoy and have a great Swedish Christmas!
