First Monday of 2019: Fika

Fika

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!

  2. My favourite weekend staple! So, instead of coffee time, I’ll now pronounce it ”fika time”!
