So this week ended lectures for everyone at KTH for the year. As we welcome the festive period, it is very common for people to host Christmas parties at work or as small groups as most people would be away from school once lectures are over (for those that do not have December examinations)
As a member of the sustainable energy engineering student council, we had one of these Christmas mingle in which we played some games with some snacks available and I had my first taste of the Swedish glögg.
Glögg is the term for mulled wine in Nordic countries. It is served hot or warm with raisins or nuts. It can either be alcoholic or non-alcoholic. It is a traditional drink during winter, especially for Christmas. In Sweden, gingerbread and lussebullar (a type of sweet bun with saffron and raisins) are typically served. I don’t think it is possible to have a Christmas party in Sweden and you won’t have glögg.
Also, the student ambassadors and the bloggers were treated to a KTH Christmas mingle. Similar to the council’s end of the year mingle, we went through the achievements of the year, played some games and also, the Swedish glögg was very present! What a good way to get into the Christmas spirit with everyone wishing each other the season’s greetings and sharing their various plans for Christmas at the end:)
Unfortunately, I do not have pictures from the Student Council mingle but thanks to Nayanika Bhalla, I have pictures from my second Christmas mingle:)
