Tuesday Trivia

 Thanks to a Norwegian-descended friend, I just became aware of a magazine titled Scandinavian Press. I was so impressed; I wish I had Scandinavian ancestry! I enjoyed the Fall 2017 and Summer 2018 issues and there were articles about Scandinavians winning Olympic Gold, Alfred Nobel and his Peace Prize, Jean Sibelius, composer, Denmark’s Virgin Islands, Finnish Independence History, Where Sweating is Spiritual (saunas), Viking Family Discoveries in America plus a dozen smaller, regular features and even recipes! One fun feature is “What’s It? Where’s It? The page shows four or five scenes from place in those five countries and invites readers to guess. Such fun!

The Summer 2018 issue carried a 2-page article on the opening of Seattle’s new Nordic Museum last May. Even without that heritage, I want to visit that museum!

If you are of Swedish, Danish, Norwegian, Icelandic or Finnish descent, you must at least check out this magazine!

    Thank you Donna, for your welcome endorsement of Scandinavian Press! As editor and publication designer of the magazine, I can tell you that it is the most rewarding thing I’ve ever done—a true “labor of love”.

    You have done your followers a service by informing them of this unique—and I believe, beautiful, quarterly publication with informative and entertaining articles about all things Scandinavian and more. Our winter issue comes out in early December. You don’t want to miss it!
