One of the most important conflicts in Swedish history is still held in memory through the many statues of St. George slaying the dragon (otherwise known as "Denmark").

To the right is the commander marching in to relieve the soldiers on duty. Someday I may post more of the whole sequence, but this is the main idea.
A quick and efficient ceremony. And now, it's time for mountains of delicious food, at the source - an authentic Swedish
smorgasbord .
