I think one of the best traditions I've heard is a Swedish tradition. Swedes love their country and believe that within its borders all residents are equal and must live according to Swedish cultural laws. Swedes, the second largest coffee consuming country in the world, consume an average of 3.2 cups of coffee per day. The most common way of socializing in Sweden is a coffee break culture called fika, where you meet with coffee and cake. The word fika comes from a rearrangement of the old Swedish word for coffee, "kaffi". Isn't this tradition so sweet?
