It was Norway, btw.

Every time a news story from America says a "Scandinavian" did something, all the Scandinavian countries look suspiciously at each other.

Eurovision 2016

Eurovision 2016

As per tradition, here's the yearly Eurovision comic.

This Eurovision had a lot of firsts: Australia became an official participant despite preforming last year, the show was shown on American TV, an American preformed, and not a single Nordic country made it to the finals except Sweden because they were hosting the show.

I actually hope America joins Eurovision some day because they'd be the most amazing drama queens every time they lost, and nothing says Eurovision like drama.

Dress the Part

Dress the Part

It's a common misconception that because Denmark doesn't have an official national costume, Denmark doesn't have festive folk-dresses at all. Nothing could be further from the truth. Different areas have wildly different clothes though, so in one area men wore huge baggy pants, in another women wore men's top-hats, in another people wore masks that covered their whole face when outside, and the list goes on.

One of the reasons why Denmark doesn't have one official national dress is because the Faroe Islands and Greenland were part of Denmark for so long, and having one standard dress would be like erasing theirs.

There was a joke here about Norwegian food being bland and Norway making a cake out of wood, but then Sister Sweden happened.

Clean up your mess or else

Sweden doesn't fuck around on cleaning day.

People have been asking for another "just everyday life for the characters" comic, and then I remembered Norway knits.

Viking Fashion Disaster

Viking Fashion Disaster

To be fair, Viking women could demand divorce for some pretty minor things, like her husband showing too much chest in public.

Sheepish Food Cravings

Sheepish Food Cravings

I got to taste some fermented sheep the other day that my Faroese housemate got from her home country. I actually rather liked it and thought it tasted and smelled like very mature cheese (my Danish housemate however thought it smelled "wrong" and proceeded to open the door to vent out, not caring how much frost she let in)

However, I got a bit concerned when she told me you can't buy it in stores, so if you want it you have to make it yourself...

Choose your friends wisely

Obviously the situation is more complicated, but this is pretty much the simplified version. Politics and money, you know.

I gave Morocco a fez because all Moroccans I've talked with were pretty proud of the hat's origin.
