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 having a modest little cross around your neck or a star of David or whatever is fine, but a T-shirt is just so in-your-face and obvious that it's sure to make people uncomfortable, 'cause let's be honest, you can wear a cross around your neck without being ultra religious, but you don't typically wear a T-shirt with a religious message unless you're VERY religious.

Would rather be loved by Jesus than Russia. . . . Russia tends to invade what it loves.

0% of the surveyed Icelanders under 25 believes in God. Stay awesome.

Confusion about this from the outside would be very understandable. After all, you guys are all wearing crosses. ;)

I suppose a shirt or cross or something of the like doesn't bother me that much, if at all, but...
My family on my mom's side is catholic, not extremely but definitely noticable. It always makes me uncomfortable when my aunt does her prayers for the day (or every second day? not sure), before a meal or before going to bed. The pictures and small statuettes of Jesus and Mary also make me feel a bit weird...
I'm not judging religious people at all (as long as it stays peaceful), but being there while I myself am an atheist feels wrong... As if I'm intruding on something deeply personal, and offending them by simply not believing (I do not try to push my non-belief, ever).

It's almsot weird how true this is. Me and my family were in a resaurant in Austria, with a big Jesus statue on the wall, everyone desperately tried to ignore it.
