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!
