FIKA + LAGOM

These are my two favorite Swedish words. Two words that dont have an exact English translation.

FIKA: is both a Swedish verb and noun (pronounced “fee-ka”) that roughly means “to drink coffee/tea” usually accompanied by something sweet. Fika is a social institution in Sweden; it means having a break, most often a coffee break, with one’s colleagues, friends, date, or family. Swedes consider having a coffee an important part of the culture.

LAGOM: (pronounced [ˈlɑ̀ːɡɔm]) is a Swedish word with no direct English equivalent, meaning “just the right amount”. The Lexin Swedish-English dictionary defines lagom as “enough, sufficient, adequate, just right”. Lagom is also widely translated as “in moderation”, “in balance”, “optimal” and “suitable.” The archetypical Swedish proverb “Lagom är bäst”, literally “The right amount is best”, is translated as “Enough is as good as a feast” in the Lexin dictionary. That same proverb is translated as “There is virtue in moderation” in Prismas Stora Engelska Ordbok.

And some people wonder why Swedes are some of the happiest people on earth. They have coffee and treats every afternoon and they are a well-balanced society completely content in having “just the right amount.” Nothing is in excess and everyone is satified, most often with a cup of kaffee and a kanelbulle in hand!

Viking farmstead on the banks of the Gota River in Ale, Sweden.

This Viking farmstead sits on the banks of the Gota River in Ale, a few miles north of Gothenburg, Sweden. Ale has a lot of ancient remains from the Iron Age and Viking periods. This oak home is based on Viking evidence from a wealthy farmer’s home. It’s 16.5m (54ft) long and 7m (23ft) wide with an oak shingle roof and Celtic knot carvings based on designs from the mid 10th Century. 

Compared to today’s homes it was dark inside, but then over 1,000 years ago people spent most of their time working outside.
