We celebrated with a few close friends and enjoyed a fantastic three course dinner! Swedes celebrate the new year same as American aside from watching the ball drop, which was something I couldn't explain and still don't understand, but no matter where you are there's something special about the thought of a new year and ringing it in family or friends.
My New Year's resolution is to progress to a fluent level of Swedish. After 7 months of living and studying Swedish I'm at a good conversational level, but being fluent is no easy task!
