In Sweden, many customs are closely associated with the changing seasons. Swedes celebrate summer with an intensity that can only be found in a people who have just endured a long, dark winter. They light candles at Advent and pay homage to a white-clad Lucia with candles in her hair. 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 old, as in the case of pickled herring, freshly salted or smoked meat, or dairy products that have been curdled, boiled or left to mature. This is a colorfully illustrated book presenting the many customs and holidays in Sweden.
