Happy Winter Solstice everybody! #wintersolstice
You’re welcome @gw_gert !
Thanks for hanging with me @Carly_B !
We might see you in this position in the future @grishund.
It’s a party @vonmentzer !
Not true @Westwildandfree . Leonore Bernadotte was born 20 February 2014.
The baby is not born yet @Westwildandfree We have to wait until summer.
They are really not that we’ll trained @MarkWRoberts11. They like to bark.
That is extraordinary @CllrNorthice.
The Christmas tree is completed. The dogs are placed. Christmas postcard time. http://t.co/6jnC5CQDTI
Heja Malin! @CllrNorthice
Slalom skiing requires that you dress like a robot: helmet, back protector, gloves, and hard boots.
Try Rusta @wildsweden
RT @wennborg I’m born on Dec 22. I used to say that I was the child of light, my father maintained that I was the offspring of darkness.
Thanks for saying that @DonGiovanna. Let’s hope that part of the swedishness will stay strong.
More laughter for everyone @openfly !
Closeness to the north pole gives us that privilege @Soninananah
Agree with you @DonGiovanna . Mental illness is big unfortunately.
I absolutely agree @openfly
Winter solstice was celebrated thousands of years ago. People always needed to find a reason to cheer things up in dark times.
Beauty and the horse @Carly_B .
The same with my home @catscatsayy . The house is on a northern slope. Hiding from light. Neighbours across the street get the light.
It will take time to get the warmth @catscatsayy
Living in Sweden gives you really dark days and really light days. Speaking about both weather and mentally.
Today is special. It’s winter solstice which marks the shortest day and the longest night of the year. And after today we get more light.
Greetings back @MyloMcCormick . Best wishes for the new year.
Oh @mjcranford. This is hard to say. We try to support each other in the Nordic. But my great grandfather was Danish.
Yes @kristin_wester. It made a bad choice.
Thanks @aerojun . It looks delicious. I really like beans.
It was passed date@Jens_LK But it worked. Now in trash bin.
Sis, husband and dogs arrive. Gingerbread and Glögg for welcoming them.
yes @aerojun but what’s the dish made off?
Well @RIOT_Rieo. It’s politics. Once upon time someone thought it to be the proper age. You can go to a pub and order it since you’re 18.
Thanks @aerojun . I get the beans but what’s the yellow stuff?
Gingerbread finished. Thanks for you all cheering. http://t.co/Vz24RuiEUT
Swedish tradition on new years eve – Dinner For One http://t.co/s9QVfyFJnn
Last year’s flour. Will that do @Jens_LK ?
No empty bottles available @josefinelinden Might use a full one.
Working on it @pollianicus Need to empty bottle first.
Want to bake gingerbread. Got ready made dough. But cannot find the rolling pin. And no baking tray. Let’s improvise.
I wish I could wake up early @dbozjak . Just not me. probably happens when I retire.
I’m trying @bizmichael
Have a great day @kezijillan !
They did the job. For better guarantee I hope. @mitsy007
Well. We wanted to wait till ski season was over in April. Then they waited for a long time to start the job. @mitsy007
We had a water leak in the bathroom last winter. After nearly a year, it is fixed. Thanks insurance company.
Beautiful ski slopes have to wait. Need to clean up this place. Yes the mouse visited this summer too. And the carpenter didn’t clean up.
Good morning! No alarm clock. Weekend. Vacation. Holiday. Office far away.
Go go go! I know two of your national team players @WeAreAustralia
I’ll wait for you @aerojun !
That’s what the menu said @aerojun
Vote around table @holymisha . Scandinavian is Norway Sweden Denmark. The nordic also Finland and Iceland.
I know @Grest trying to do telepathy.
And what could I do @Grest ?
Oh no. Norway is doing everything right. Sweden’s not there. 9-3 in 15 minutes game time.
I gave it up @C_Mazza . Others helped out I guess I just have to think before I tweet.
Tv is broken. Solution. Got a table at sportsbar @olearysfans. Now plenty of big screens showing the game.
At house. Snow. Everything is just great. Until. Turning on TV for todays handball game. Dead! What!?
Truly on the opposite side of the globe @MrSan
I hope your Xmas will be fantastic @theodorafleur . Many things to experience now.
I guessed that @MrSan . You can get fake snow at least.
You worry about me tweeting and riding. But who is driving that car? http://t.co/dfySWjYIbI
Have you ever in history had an white Christmas in NZ? @MrSan
I might take you up on that @JustinianiMonse Mexico is definitely a place I like to visit.
Where are you from @JustinianiMonse
At home we cook lots of swedish dishes. Kids in Sweden think Tacos and Pizza are swedish @JustinianiMonse
I’m going to get a white Christmas for sure @Suzzy_Smith
We go berserk all the time @rich1068 . Viking heritage.
It’s the prince Carl-Philip getting married @Symposiarchin
It differs @Nestor076 . Salt or sand is most common. Some experiment with sugar and silicon.
2015 will be crazy @rich1068 . Royal wedding and royal baby. Media will go berserk.
It’s fine @Nestor076 . Dry road and a thin layer of snow on roadside.
We will get that for sure @rich1068 . Treat for monarchies.
Not visible @failedVegan . You mean those hiding in the dark?
Nope @kribbemannen . The man drives. I’m co-driver.
The man drives @jessovenden. Would never ever drive and text.
On the road. It’s pitch black in the Swedish forests. Is behind some other cars. sleepy…
Honestly I seldom eat swedish cuisine for lunch @JustinianiMonse
Around my office at Skanstull Stockholm there’s lots of different cuisines @JustinianiMonse
Yeah right @PrinsDanne . Nice to see that the family is active on Twitter. (fake accounts that is)
Yes! @Suzzy_Smith there is some natural but mostly artificial snow.
I’m heading for Sälen in Dalarna @Suzzy_Smith
Driving to holiday house. Traffic is low. One hour down and four more to go.
Read all about the Swedish Royal family on their homepage: http://t.co/sGWZQZiQzb
Princess Madeleine and Mr. Christopher O’Neill are delighted to announce that The Princess is expecting their second child.
19 % of Swedes download and use file-sharing services. http://t.co/GnOeM3ZrMb
For all out on Swedish roads. Updated traffic information can be found at The Swedish Transport Administration. http://t.co/Pcxs9hg9mZ
Cross our fingers for good road conditions @Tusse_Larsson
Abisko is fantastic. And that’s up north! Almost as fas as you can get in Sweden. I’m not hiking but its said to be the best @DonGiovanna
I’m going to the skiresort Sälen in Dalarna. It’s not even halfway up the country. 4-5 hours drive. @DonGiovanna
I’m heading north today and hope to be greeted by lots of snow. Not while driving but at arrival. @schwedentrip
Lund is a nice town @tntd. Lots of interesting development going on.
Dark dark dark is this morning. Rain rain rain today. All snow gone in Stockholm. Sigh!
Midnight. Car packed. Time for bed. Tomorrow is another day in paradise.
I pack bags for tomorrow’s trip to the mountains. Many things to bring. 2 people filling 1 car. How did we get room with three kids?
My sambos name is Peo. And its not a nice name in some languages. Right?
Sorry if I offended anyone with the word sambo. It’s just one of many words that have different meaning in different languages.
Haha @wgreenhouse Trying to keep up with several discussion.
@belola it’s fine I guess. You have to ask the people out there :-)
We even have a law regulating this. Sambolagen (SFS 2003:376) translates into Cohabitees Act
Secret Carbonara recipe: spaghetti onion garlic bacon whipped cream black pepper parmesan egg yolk
In Sweden sambo is the term for the partner you live with without marrying @egadheg
Great app Translate/Översätt! Thanx for the tip @SheepOfJesus
I accually hired a man through a tweet on twitter @rimzS. He was a good catch. He’s still around.
I got it @SheepOfJesus.
I’m a PC person @may_gun. Need the support guy helping me out. Mac people help themselves at our office.
You don’t live here any more @svknco ?
App for chrome ? Or Android? Iphone? @SheepOfJesus
Thanx @andmatand ! It’s good enough. Had forgotten about that. Uses it a lot. Great stuff.
Trying to find a text-to-speech service for Swedish. Anyone know any free?
I think that will work fine. He comes and visits xmas eve and then sneaks back in the night for even more gifts @pollianicus
LOL @slang4201, It’s really not that bad. It’s vodka with bitter taste.Malört Artemisia absinthium grow wild here. Wrong pronunciation
Two days of getting presents if you do both @pollianicus. You can do it any way you like since its your first. Time for new ideas.
Xmas day is the day of leftovers. Also the party night for home comers. And the Kings’ traditional Christmas speech @pollianicus
What area of Sweden @rimzS ?
All kids have left. Empty rooms but filled with private stuff. The girls will come back after their trips. But right now emptiness.
Spent quality time with my son. Miss to have him around. Years since he moved out but still.
What are your skills @rimzS ?
One in five use Twitter in Sweden. There are more men than women who use Twitter in Sweden. http://t.co/HxuCw5X6H6
Looking delicious @dalzs. Tacos are national food according to swedish kids.
You’re welcome @AlfredAndPaul
Green Christmas trees at least @ET2media . Snow will come.
I got a mail from Mim today @WeAreAustralia ! Thanks for connecting us <3
Yes a mix of many things @KeelinJ. Some people make own. I buy them.
The beautiful snow we had yesterday in Stockholm is replaced by rain. It’s slippery out there. Watch out!
Slussenis an important traffic hub in Stockholm. It’s in decline and is now up for renovation. 8 years and 8 billion. Huge investment.
New e-card in two minutes. Thanks SL! Still service at Slussen. Who thought that.
Oh no! Commuter e-card out of order. Typically don’t want to go to city in rush hour and queue for #SL support.
Weekend doing. I have my little bird book @memoytortas. I only write down sort of bird not date or number.
Since the kids moved out there is a shortage of food @KeelinJ . Not even milk for müsli. On the other hand I’m not doing the shopping.
Before heading to office need to feed the birds with suet balls and shelled sunflower seeds.
Breakfast. Tea and cheese on hard bread. Reading the news paper and listening to the radio.
Closure is the only option if not keeping @michelvst . It will be a new study on the topic. Prime land for housing
Oh, now it’s late. Tomorrow workday. Every day is like the other. Soon holiday. Long for the change.
Environmental issues on the news, yes to the western ring road in Stockholm and no to Bromma airport. Infrastructure is a big question.
Maybe they have to save the best referees for mens championship next month @butitsstupid
I think there where a lot of situations in the first round where I didn’t get it @butitsstupid
I’m clueless @butitsstupid. The referee supervise unanimously.
Semi-final between @SvenskHandboll and Norway on Friday. High stake when it’s the neighbours fighting.
I’m not spending xmas at home so not doing much @anaisnin. I like it red, white and green.
It’s the perfect game for swedish temperament and weather @C_Mazza
Hej @JGraigory ! You are welcome!
Lots of new talented players on the floor tonight at the club event. Love to see girls in all ages mix and play together #handball
At Sport ”palace” Brännkyrkahallen. Preparing for Xmas fun. Will Santa arrive?
That’s what the chef told me @rnml Probably a swedish version.
Big fluffy snowflakes falling in Stockholm. Christmas spirit returns. http://t.co/EVXbzfp0JW
Oh what!? Engaged in work and suddely looking out. SNOW * * * * *
Well even if we are equal as a society compared to others there is definitely improvements in many areas @nicolevonvon
Seems to be obvious @LOQuent. Unfortunately it is not so. How can we change that?
Lunch. Mexican Chilaquiles. http://t.co/Wo8kYr79CC
Mentors are great @glittertrash.I’ll put it on my list. You know any specific program?
Question of today! How do we boost women in Tech/STEM in Sweden? Any good examples out there?
@WeAreAustralia Got It! Thanks a lot! Mail is coming her way!
Writing about eggs in fridge make me thinking about fertilization and all the loved and wanted children conceived that way.
Office chores today: write contracts, provide feedback, plan 2015, finish projects, writing blog post … and be @sweden
Eggstra info. Swedish shops need not to keep egg cold but it’s part of diary/mejeri as why its stored around milk. http://t.co/JeavNYgaY2
At office. Commuting went smooth this morning. Bus and tube less than 30 minutes. Slippery today. Let’s not brake anything out there.
Thanks for you thought @ormiga
Stefan Löfven on @TheDailyShow talking IKEA-politics. Any intl link?
Good morning @sherlabyliu ! Welcome to Sweden. You will make it if you catch the Arlanda express train.
Time for bed. Tomorrow a full day with work and play. I’ll be back!
@WeAreAustralia My daughter is travelling to Australia and I think they should connect
@WeAreAustralia I guess knowing how things work down under I could get info on Mim but this seems like a great way
@WeAreAustralia She lived with my family in the 80ies and she is from Canberra if I remember correctly
@WeAreAustralia some info but cannot find contact information
@WeAreAustralia :-) I like to get in contact with Mim Jambrecina Tasmania. Once an exchange student in Sweden

Bedtime story for your kids! Picture book explains to children how the internet works: https://t.co/SnVRCAbg8D
is it for individuals or schools? @MEUVienna
That is a shame! @MEUVienna Who are you looking for?
I learned more about eggs tonight than I remember from school. Eggs are great food and I eat a lot – not only at easter.
Could be, but extending the shelf life of food is important for less waste @JanJoostBouwman
We have the luxury of offering wildlife as mice and birds @aerynsunx
.@WeAreAustralia egg, salmon, ham, pickled herring, beetroot-salad, meatballs, prince sausage, potato, lemon, tomato, salad
Lots of talent in the team @ChiefLTJD

There were always tough games when locals met @naseeral wrestling soccer and other
It was my daughter @RydmarkOfficial that made me love the sport. She is tough. Now trying out Kick boxing in Thailand.
Handball was important sports where I grew up. VinslövHK my home team and @ifkkristianstad the mean boys.
This is all about the team @katebowyer. Swedes love team and indoor sport.
It’s a great sport @opinion8ed_dyke. Lots of fighting spirit.
It’s contact sport @jrwyke. No boring sequences. On your toes all the time.
Naa not really @deerpunkx. It’s fast, hard and body contact. And indoors.
Great to hear @miss_azide. In Sweden it’s very popular. Bring him here.
Fot those of you never heard of the sport Handball I recommend a quick reading. http://t.co/ahZnbDHGUo
Sweden headlines: Pakistan terrorist school shooting, Key interest rate zero in Sweden, Secret Swedish police abuse file,
Talking about office flowers. My geranium want to bloom in the winter. I pinch of the flowers. Save energy for the spring.
Yes we have. It looks good but tastes not. I use it for watering my flowers at the office @SheepOfJesus
Well, I don’t want to give away brand of coke @madisonswe but some of us drink too much.
In Sweden we drink a lot. Waste snorting anything. We have to much snot due to colds. @halleluyang
The sun makes us all a bit happier @Gswedes as the sun sets and darkness restores.
Yes I do @Myskrabba and I do not recommend too much sweets. I practise eat now and don’t save for later.
It’s a must @incremus! And every year Coke pay plenty to try to change the habit of drinking julmust in Sweden.
Twice a year candy appears at office in large quantity, easter and xmas. I love candy! http://t.co/oCB7b56VJo
And the beetroot salad with herring, called Sillsallad. A Youtube instruction :-) https://t.co/gpCeshRy7G
I found a recipe for Beetroot salad the way I like it. http://t.co/BwfG7UlEoc
It’s beetroot and mayonnaise @Rav_Bunneh
A mix and I think it takes a life time to love @MirvanAhmad
Lunch. Swedish Jultallrik supermarket style. For you only. Swedes normally don’t buy ready made. http://t.co/mJdulQY42s
Lucky you if there is morning light @MagicianofBF. Here it’s dark going to work, and dark leaving work.
Furious! They are kids! Low-level terrorism attacking Schools. http://t.co/ygrXziM3Nr
Office hours. Paperwork and meetings. Planning for 2015.

Yes the caving syndrome is common around here @locust9
That’s the way to go @thelittlepakeha . The Internet is great for community work.
The goat is still standing @MissLaurenK. breaking news otherwise.
Hej Morgan @PeopleofNZ ! How is winter down there?
Stockholm was having 5 hours of sun in November. All time low. No snow and little rain made it just boring.
Right there @JellyFishFly . Soon it will change. Long summer nights are the benefit.
Hello world! Off to work in the dark. Clear sky gives hope of sun today.
Bedtime. The cat gets his medicin against arthritis. He loves it. See you tomorrow. Sleep tight. http://t.co/Sk6dfZT0J7
Can she really have a normal relationship @swedishgurl ? But she needs it.
I am confused @swedishgurl. To many loose ends and twists. Hate to wait for the next episode.
And now something completely different. #bigbangtheory Never go to sleep without a smile on your lips.
So thrilling. Dar Adal you snake. #Homeland
Homeland. A must! Streaming SVTplay to TV works fine with screen mirroring.
The cobble stones and the nice art shops @xmacex
Walking towards Slussen. Hornsgatspuckeln one of my favorite streets in Stockholm http://t.co/pILVlW8I9k
I know @lotta_fred. At Italian restaurant for dinner with hairdresser no.1.
Just love to get my hair washed at the hairdresser. Greatest head massage.
It’s a thin line between love and hate @CPRmusicUK . Cannot deny the mixed feelings when it comes to sports.
Thanx for the mohawk suggestions. Guess I’m to old for that.
Oh Well. That was another day at the office. Off to see my hairdresser. Any suggestions?
I Sweden we love to talk about Zlatan @jrwyke ;-)
This is the news of today @Paul1381 not my opinion.

Just finished my monthly report. Every figure checked. Now Excel refuses to open my file. Time for lunch I say.
For privacy reasons no statistics published where you can see both the first and last name together @Zindaret
Lovely and not so common name @flintberg
I’ll try it at home tonight and see what my cat says @RaniBeaton
OK! I will not feed the trolls. Thanks for reminding me that they are out there. Like to see more Santas.
Thanx for supporting me @stiftelsen!
An abortion is a private matter and speculating in it as you do is making me sad. It’s a legal right in Sweden and I support it @justme277
I don’t belivie in bombs as a solution to anything @justme277. Talking is what I belive in.
At work I fund projects as manager of The Internet fund. https://t.co/aXPqfWuRWE
It’s 10 am in Stockholm Sweden and it is a grey rainy day. Busy at work last week before the holidays.
Swedish lessons might come on later this week @Carly_B.
Thats a new one @hitlerlovejuice. I used look like Mary in little house on the prairie.
Thanx for all the good luck wishes! It will be a challenge to keep up with all your cheering out there.
I joined twitter in 2009 but I’m not the hottest twitterer. This week I will practise my English for sure.
