Welcome! Print

One of the objectives and goals of the Swedish Club of Houston is to locate and join together people interested in Swedish heritage (Swedes, Swedish descendants, and others) in the Houston area, primarily through informal events and get-togethers, social as well as cultural.

The Club currently counts just under 120 members who meet at various events throughout the year, such as the annual Pea Soup and Pancakes supper, Kräftskiva (Crayfish Party), Valborgsmässoafton (Bonfire), Smörgåsbord, and Christmas Traditions/Lucia program, as well as special events centered around cultural happenings.

Test your Knowledge of Literature Print

Question: What do the following all have in common?

  • I Was Prepared, by Justin Case
  • The Numbers Game, by Cal Q. Later
  • Deep in Debt, by Owen A. Lott
  • Favorite Swedish Recipes, by the Swedish Club of Houston

Answer: They are all books that were never written! Of course, there is ample reason why the first three were never written... but there's only one reason why the last one wasn't: we don't have enough of your favorite Swedish recipes!

Send your favorites to Karen Wolz
(be sure to substitute "@" for " (at) " and "." for " (dot) " before sending)!

 
Friends of Lucia Print

As everyone knows, Continental Airlines is no more (and, as a result, we have lost our sponsor of Lucia's airfare from Houston to Sweden). Thus, it becomes incumbent upon the members of the Club to step up and donate to support the long-standing tradition of the Club of sending its Lucia to Sweden. A number of sponsorship levels are available:
