Votives! Enjoyed a trip to Sweden and Denmark this fall and I've adopted using votives in the late afternoon. I live in the northeast so it's cozy here too.

Fika (pronounced feekah) is a great tradition that I miss. In Sweden you are invited to fika no matter what time of day. Imagine when my parents invited some American tourists over for fika at 10 pm. The sun was still up and so were the poor Americans until 4 am.

The shoes off rule is one we adhere to in Canada as well. You have to really work hard to convince a person to leave their shoes on if they need to for some reason. I think padding around in sock feet in someones house helps to make you feel relaxed and at home.
