A swedish word that I have noticed becomes very beloved by non-swedes in Sweden is "fika". There is no translation for it in English and not in any other language that I know either. A try to translate it would be coffetime or cafévisit, but it doesn't do it because it doesn't always involve coffee or a visit to a café. How it may be, the word is a hit and us Swedes use it and most of all DO it alot, fika.

I gave up a big laugh when I found out that there is a restaurant in London named just that, Fika. It's genious and the next time I'm there I have to go. I love fika!
