If you attend a kräftskiva (crayfish party) or other festive occasion in Sweden, you’ll likely have snaps, a little shot of alcohol, perhaps akvavit (aquavit). To accompany your snaps, you can sing snapsvisor (drinking songs) which are an important part of the festivities.
Vem tog mitt snapsglas? Who took my shot glass?
