Last year, our #SwedishChristmas series, written by contributor Victoria Martínez for The Local's Members, explored the history behind a different Swedish festive tradition each day. Lots of you got in touch to say you enjoyed the series, so we're doing it again – and this year we let you choose what we write about.
In polls on Twitter and Facebook, we let readers choose between three different options that you wanted to read about this December: surprising facts about Sweden, famous Swedes, or Swedish sayings explained.
Surprising facts about Sweden came out top in a narrow victory over Swedish sayings explained.
So every day from December 1st-24th, we will be sharing a new unusual fact about this country in an article here on www.thelocal.se for Members of The Local.
