Julbord in Stockholm

In Sweden we have a tradition called Julbord (Christmas table). Almost every company  as well as all the familys meet up to have “a Julbord”. This is a tradition that goes on from first of Advent until Christmas day, and is a “must have” on Christmas eve. A typical julbord consists of Herring, ham, meatballs, salmon and many many more dishes. It’s almost like Spanish tapas but served in the middle of the room where all pic up their food.

Yesterday I had a Julbord at an old ship called Mälardrottningen. The weather wasn’t typical Swedish since we still have no ice (!!) and just a little snow, but we have plenty of clouds and rain🙂

This is a pic that’s taken from the ship towards the southern parts of Stockholm. The reason for the pic is the lights that I suspect comes from Zinkensdamm.

Hope you had a nice weekend
