No Christmas without ginger thins

Traditionally, ginger thins are consumed around Christmas. But as Swedes simply can’t resist them, they are now popular all year round, not the least with coffee during “fika” (coffee breaks). Their spicy character comes from cinnamon, cardamom, ginger and cloves. So why does their Swedish name “pepparkakor” translate into pepper cookies? No one really knows, and it probably doesn’t matter. What matters is that they’re simply gorgeous just as they are. Or topped with blue cheese together with sweet, white wine.

As Christmas approaches in Sweden, days are shorter, nights are longer, and temperatures drop. But Swedish homes are anything but dark and cold. Great efforts are made to create a warm and cosy atmosphere. Families spend time preparing Christmas decorations while enjoying good things to eat. With VINTERSAGA, the home becomes a serene shelter from the winter cold.

The candlelit Lucia procession is a solemn Swedish tradition leading up to Christmas. Children in white full-length gowns, candles in hands or in wreaths on the head, singing beautiful songs. But best of all, they treat you to saffron rolls, ginger thins and steaming hot mulled drink.

Ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, clove. That’s what makes Sweden’s most loved Christmas biscuit so great. It’s the type you just can’t stop eating. Try them with saffron buns and mulled drink for the winter version of fika.

Celebrate the holidays like a Swede

In the weeks leading up to Christmas, some parts of Sweden see just a few hours of sunlight each day. For generations, this seasonal shift marked a time for Swedes to gather together, make their homes cosy, and spend time prepping (and enjoying) good things to eat. With VINTERSAGA—featuring favoured treats like ginger thins, saffron rolls, and mulled wine (preferably with almonds and raisins stirred in)—you can stay inside and enjoy the holidays like a traditional Swede, too.

VINTERSAGA ginger thins
Story

Celebrate the holidays like a Swede

Do you feel a little Swedish this Christmas? If you do, our food series VINTERSAGA is just what you need. It features ginger thins, saffron rolls, mulled wine and more. So do the holidays like a traditional Swede - gather together, make your home cosy and spend time enjoying good things to eat!

It’s four weeks to Christmas. Petra Bragée and her family stand outside the nearly 200-year-old farmhouse they call home, just a half hour's drive from Älmhult, where IKEA was founded. Every light in the house is turned off except the decorative stars hung in windows and strings of bulbs lining the eaves. This is a favourite tradition for Petra and her loved ones. They stand at a distance to admire the twinkling home while sipping glögg—a sweet mulled wine—and munching ginger thins, the kind of treats you'll find in the VINTERSAGA series. "We need these things this time of year," smiles Petra.

Favourite holiday treats

Many Swedes build gingerbread houses for Christmas, but Petra’s family takes it to a new level. They host an annual gingerbread building competition among the neighbours. "We’re more and more people every year," Petra says, pointing out that the competition actually isn’t that important. Instead, spending time together is what means the most. The kids don’t care about winning either. They’re more interested in eating the creations. One of the event's perks? "It smells really good with this gingerbread in the house," Petra says.

Making time for togetherness

Labouring over batches of gingerbread dough is not the only thing Petra and her family do in the weeks leading up to Christmas. They also bake saffron rolls, and head to the forest to gather moss and pinecones for decorating their home. "It’s a quite busy time," she laughs. "But you get to spend a lot of time with the ones you love.” Whether you make all treats yourself, like Petra and her family or buy ready-made VINTERSAGA products doesn’t really matter. The important part is being together. Loved ones and good food. That’s the true taste of a traditional Swedish Christmas.
