Same to you!

I'm sitting here getting ready to do my shopping online. Tried the stores last night...I just don't have the patience for waits and crowds.

And a very Merry Christmas to you, as well, Angela, and to all our migrainepage friends!

My paternal grandmother was Swedish and my paternal grandfather was Norwegian. I don't know any Swedish, but Grandpa taught me a few words in Norwegian--I understand that they're somewhat similar.

What was the translation of your Swedish?

Becky santa I love you

My mother was first generation Swede. She always hated that her parents didn't teach her Swedish because they "were American now".

All I know is (and excuse the spelling, I'm doing it phonetically), is talk-sa-micka (thank you), far-say-goo (you're welcome), Dooka (little Doll, and my Dad's pet name for my Mom), and Flicka (girl).

I used to love to sit on my great-aunt's lap and have her say Seventy-sailors sailed the seven seas. I remember laughing hysterically at how it sounded.

How sweet, Angela Smile

I was Lucia once upon a time, as were my two girls. My son was a star boy, of course.

Would you like to see Lucia at The American Swedish Institute in Minneapolis?

I have never had the pleasure of tasting Lutfiske though What a Face My mother said she would never subject her children to that.

I do miss my Mom's potato sausage. She would make every Christmas.

Thanks for letting me know I can still say a couple words in Swedish. Has anyone ever been there? I would love to go.

Angela, how do you say seventy seven sailors sailed the seven seas. I seem to recall a lot of hoot hootens, but I may be way off, I was pretty little.

Hi Charlotte

Here is what I think you heard ......

Sjuttio sju (sjömän)sjomen seglade de sju haven.

It took me a while to learn how to say "sju" (seven) in swedish.
I thought of a "shoe" when I needed to say 7 Wink

God Jul och Gott Nytt År

"Shoe" is the same word for seven that I learned in Norwegian. I have no idea how it's written, but that's how my grandpa pronouced it. Ane, toe, thrae, feda, fem, sex, shoe,....That's all the further I remember (this is how they sound--no idea how they're actually written).

I love lutefisk, lefse and fruit soup. Last week my in-laws brought home a little lutefisk for me from our church's Lutefisk supper, because I was migraining. It was so good! It's an acquired taste, I guess.
