#tbt #throwbackthursday It’s been over 100 years since Anders Zorn painted this portrayal of a midsummer dance in Sweden, but it almost feels like it could be from our own Swedish Midsummer celebration in Battery Park in NYC last year :) Why not check out this beautiful painting (and many more of Zornโ€™s works) IRL at @NationalAcademyMuseum? #AndersZorn #Zorn #artexhibit #midsummer #nyc #swedennewyork (at National Academy Museum & School)

It always makes us happy when former interns stop by the office! It was great to see you, @eriksellgren!

๐Ÿ€ Happy St. Patrick’s Day! ๐Ÿ€ Lots of people braved the freezing NYC weather today to watch the annual parade on 5th Avenue. #stpatricksday #parade #nyc #newyork (at St. Patrick’s Day Parade)

#tbt #throwbackthursday March is Womenโ€™s History Month, which highlights the contributions of women to the events in history and contemporary society. This photo depicts members of the women’s suffrage movement in Gothenburg, Sweden in the beginning of the 20th century. In Sweden, women gained voting rights and the right to run for office in 1921.

Happy Shrove Tuesday! In Sweden many celebrate with a โ€œsemlaโ€ โ€“ a small, wheat flour bun, flavored with cardamom and filled with almond paste and whipped cream. The tradition is rooted in #fettisdag (Fat Tuesday) when the buns were eaten at a last celebratory feast before Lent.
