THE SWEDISH CHRISTMAS TABLE TRADITION
Celebrating Christmas and eating a Christmas feast is a tradition that has followed us ever since the Viking Age of the 11th century, when the expression "drinking Christmas" was coined. During the Middle Ages, the Christian Christmas celebration came to Sweden with the influence of Advent. Over the years, it has been discussed which dishes are considered to belong on the Swedish Christmas table and a number of dishes have been added. Christmas ham and veal jam are examples of dishes that appeared the longest on the Swedish Traditinal Christmas table. Prince sausage, gravlax, red cabbage salad and herrings with different flavors appeared later and the popular meatball was not introduced on the Christmas table until 1970. In summary, it can be said that today's Swedish Christmas table consists of dishes that are partly related to the fasting rules of the Middle Ages, partly associated with the traditional slaughter of the Christmas pig before Christmas and is partly a remnant from the preservation methods of the time such as pickled herring. For the Swedish Christmas table, there are also different types of traditional drinks. Since pre-Christian times, fermented drink made from grain has been common in Scandinavia, in the form of, for example, beer. Spiced brandy became more common in Scandinavia in the 18th century, and later aquavit became the common Christmas drink.
Did you know that the classic carol "Hej Tomtegubbar" has been sung at Swedish christmas celebrations since the first half of the 19th century?
