The Swedes have been eating crayfish since the 1500’s and today our crayfish parties are one of our most beloved traditions. From our schnapps songs and silly party hats, to the way we eat our crayfish. Attending a crayfish party at least once in your life is a must! Don’t believe me? Take a look at this video from Nordstjernan. Big thanks to all the SACC organizations for keeping our fun traditions alive so far away from home!
