Swedish traditions

Largely secular and sadly devoid of traditions, Swedes celebrate easter, Valpurgis, Midsummer, All saints eve, Saint Lucias day and Christmas. That's pretty much it.

But know what tradition we have that you might not have in your country?
We have the proud tradition of dropping your pacifiers off at the kittens at zoo once you quit using pacifiers.
It's just done.

I'll go to Skansen when I visit Sweden week after next. I'll show you proof. It's a fine tradition, we're proud of it. Not sure what the kitten think?

But what's your tradition when it comes to such an important rite of passage as quitting the pacis?
