Something I learned in Sweden: "Fars Dag"

"Hej, Sverige"

Living in Sweden, there are two things I have difficulty getting to stick:

1) No turning "right on red," while driving.
2) Father's Day is celebrated in November. 

Yes, November. This holiday is celebrated on the second Sunday in November. (More, on Swedish Father's Day, here.)

This Monday, I'd hope that the kids are making cards in school. I would like to send off a "Hipp hipp hurrah" to anyone preparing for Swedish Father's Day. (...that's how it's said here!) I wanted to share a few things with you that we made when we celebrated Father's Day, in June.  When do you celebrate this holiday in your area of the world? I'd love to hear from you and about these traditions in your area of the world.

    1. Thank you! I hope you have the chance to try.

  2. Oh gosh! I never really thought about other countries celebrating on different days like that. I'm already bad enough at remembering dates... I forgot my anniversary once... tsk, tsk... lol!

    That first card is the cutest with that little tie.

    P.S. Your pup Henry sounds adorable and travel friendly ;)

    Have a great week!

    1. Crazy, isn't it! (with dates!) It's so difficult! Thanks for sharing your story! (Henry thanks you, too!)

  3. Took me by suprise until my rational Swedish husband figured it was to be 6 months after Mother's Day!


Thank you!
