While we are on the subject of patriotism we might as well also send a big "Hipp Hurra" to Sweden today, since it's our National Day today, the 6th of June.
Not that it's all that celebrated in Sweden, not like they do in our neighbour country Norway, or in the States - but still, a day that calls for celebration somehow!
Enough reason to be whipping up a 'kladdkaka' a bit later! :)
