The Easy Way



Religion is a very private thing in the Nordic countries and not something you're supposed to tell others about, both because most people aren't religious so it would be considered rude, and also because they're such personal feelings for religious people.

So a sure way to ruin the mood is to wear a T-shirt with a religious message, or any other object that somehow show what religion you belong to, most of all because Nordics will probably be too polite to talk about it (like I said, you're not supposed to talk about religion), so it will be a huge elephant in the room and they will just sit and stare awkwardly at you, afraid they might say something that'll hurt your religious feelings. :XD:

Just a couple of days ago i saw a woman wearing that exact shirt in the train station and... yeah i felt extremely awkward. Thank god i was alone, if i wasn't it would have been even more awkward!

Not true there are in betweens, they are just not as loud and attention whoring like the extremists of both ends of the religious spectrum.

My ex-dormmate is religious and all those 6 months we lived together I was afraid I say something wrong :D Sometimes even a harmless joke made her a bit uncomfortable. So throw away all that black humour, no vampires and ghosts, dancing skeletons in Corpse Bride are really hardcore... I really like her but I've never got used to this humour/ghost stories censorship (not that she would tell me to do that, I just feel really uncomfortable when she looks at me like "Well, this is a bit scary, I won't sleep well tonight". )
Btw, if you wore the Jesus T-shirt here in the Czech Republic, many people would look pretty strange at you and my granddad would start a discussion on topic "Why are you so fucking wrong." :D

In America, you're either really religious, or really atheist. There's no in between.

soooo true!

I don't like that kind of thing. You want to be religious, go ahead. But don't go around advertising it. It just makes non-religious people feel either awkward or agitated.
