Swedish #wordoftheday translates as "snow cannon". You've probably heard of snow cannons that produce artificial snow, but in Swedish, the snow cannon also applies to a weather phenomenon. The snökanon is when large amounts of cold air come in over relatively warm waters, resulting in heavy snow. Yep, that's what we Swedes have been calling the Beast from the East!

To minnas is to remember. Today the EU remembers victims of terrorist attacks in Europe and elsewhere in the world. March 11 marks the anniversary of the 2004 Madrid-Atocha train bombings. Last year, on April 7, Sweden was hit by terrorism in a truck attack in central Stockholm. It killed five people and injured 15.

Swedish #wordoftheday means woman. Tomorrow is International Women's Day. Everyone, regardless of gender, has the right to work and support themselves, to balance career and family life, and to live without the fear of abuse or violence. Sweden says so!

Today's #toungetwister is all about alliteration, so it's catchiness is totally lost in translation: "Selma collects semlor. Look how many semlor Selma collected." Semlor, as you probably guessed, is the plural version of semla. Most Swedes consume more than one during the winter months of the year...
