We had reservations for a christmas smorgasbord today (called julbord in Swedish). We decided to skip it for one reason or another. When my wife called to cancel, she found out that today was the restaurants last day for julbord. They were closing five days early.
And the guy on the phone was glum when he heard we were not coming.
Swedes love their Christmas food. You know it’s a crisis when they start giving it up.
