Fika is considered a social institution in Sweden; it means having a break, most often a coffee break, with one’s colleagues, friends, date or family. The word fika can be used as both verb and a noun. You can fika at work by taking a “coffee break”, fika with someone like a “coffee date”, or just drink a cup of coffee, tea or other non-alcoholic beverage. As such, the word has quite ambiguous connotations, but almost always includes something to eat, such as biscuits, cakes and even sweets, accompanied with the drink. This practice of taking a break, often with a cinnamon roll, biscuits, or cookies, and perhaps with fruit on the side, is central to Swedish life.
Although the word may in itself imply “taking a break from work”, this is often emphasized using the word fikapaus (“fika pause”) or fikarast (“fika break”), with kaffepaus and kafferast, respectively, as near synonyms. Fika may also mean having coffee or other beverages at a café or konditori (a “patisserie-based coffeehouse”).
Traditionally, fika requires sweet, baked goods, especially cinnamon rolls.
Kaffebröd (“coffee bread”; sometimes called fikabröd, “fika bread”) is a collective name for all kinds of biscuits, cookies, buns, etc. that are traditionally eaten with coffee. Non-sweetened breads are normally not included in this term (even though these may sometimes be consumed with coffee). Used as a noun fika also refers to kaffebröd and coffee combined.
Advent is a season observed in many Christian countrys as a time of expectant waiting and preparation for the celebration of the Christmas.
