Home, Swede home

Quora is a question-and-answer website with members worldwide. It’s also my favorite social media site.

A few months ago, one Quora member took a DNA test and discovered Scandinavian background. “What are some cool things I can do with this information?” he (or she) asked the Quora community.

Much to my surprise, I had a pretty darn good answer. What to do with newfound Scandinavian lineage? Plenty!

  1. Request a discount at IKEA.
  2. Learn to make fårikål.
  3. Convince your friends to go out for smørrebrød instead of tacos.
  4. Create a Spotify playlist of only Scandinavian artists.
  5. Redecorate your home with hygge in mind.

You can trust my answer because my grandfather was born in Sweden.
