Swedish National Day


Today, June 6th (060606 scaryyyy), is the official Swedish National Day. I say official because it wasn't always so. It used to be called "The Day of The Swedish Flag", but as from 1983 it was established as our National Day and everyone gets a day off from work or school from 2005.

Any reason to celebrate and eat cake is fine with me! And as you can see from the picture, that is exactly what I did today.

Well of course I had to put up a picture of it Buj, just so that you would feel even more like you're missing out on being a swede.

arch, you're just jealous I ate the cake... lol

Hala samawel, well we can celebrate the day after the national day- day. You bringing the cake?

Kaya jaan! Ja ja absolut, har du tårta? lol

u can bring one hell of a choc cake for samawel, biz and myself :)

mj can have leftovers if she's good :P

Shaykhspeara Sha'ira said...

I think MJ wants cake? lol marrtein ya3ni.

Biz meet alf ahla wo sahla! There's more cake where that came from!

Aha? 2nd of dec...hmmm...I might just be in the UAE then... tayyeb, here's a thought, Samawel if you're listening, get the cake (make it two, one for me, rest of you can share), and I'll show up, and the rest of you can come as well. Buj get the flags, Shaykhspeara, get your stomach.

There, sorted.

MJ said...

I think I don't like Buj. It's 6:13 AM and he's not being nice offering me leftovers.

Thank you anyways, I think Max will appreciate it much. (Max is the dog, and sandly this one doesn't bite... but he bark...all the time)

I think I will have some cake before I sleep...

Shaykhspeara Sha'ira said...

Well I think Buj really likes cake. Don't worry, I'll make sure you get one whole for yourself kaman. Oh you have a dog? pooochi poooo! Well Max has to have his own doggy bone shaped cake with his name proudly written on it: MAX lol
