First Monday of 2019: FikaPosted: January 7, 2019
Let’s start with gott nytt år – A belated Swedish wish of Happy New Year. If Swedes do decide to leave the house in winter, it’s probably to “fika”. “Fika” is both a verb and a noun. You can say “shall we fika?” or “come to mine for a fika.” It means to consume coffee with something sweet. Most offices will have a rota of who is bringing in the cakes, each day.
Who knows, maybe sitting down and having coffee plus a treat might make the World run better.
Let’s try it!
