Can someone please confirm? (or not?)
The main reason I like getting invited is getting food!

Sydney,
IF this rule exits it's especially meant to get rid of parasites like you, who value neither the hosts nor the occasion but mainly come to stuff their face

Peg,
it's just good etiquette to share food. the swedes are very selfish and homogeneous, therefore feel they're entitled in their tiny little country

Swedish food leaves much to be desired.

No one is missing anything.

Sydney,

Both yes and no, it's actually out of respect. Im a swede (59 years old) and when I was a kid I got asked if it was ok to eat dinner with the family or if my mom wanted me home for dinner later. For my self I allways invite my guest to eat but most often they decline out of respect

Sydney,

It was a very flawed bit of research, about arriving uninvited/unexpected at dinner time and getting fed.

The swedes and most nordics answered, "you don't do that, that's extremely rude/impolite" and as such were defaulted into the NO category, making them look bad. When the truth is not that simple

In Portugal, leaving without being offered food? Or being invited at meal times and not eat? Inconcivable! 36

In Canada, as a guest, you leave so full that you don't have to eat for a week.

In France, sometimes we change the entire menu to please the guest.

Trix,

Well, it's more like the parents announce to friends or guests; "Well, it's almost dinner time!" With a pause and a look which actually is code for: " Time to [email protected]#k off" Lots of people not from the country are amazed when they find out.

Trix,

It's the same in Germany when kids are over. Except for sleepovers, of course.

I can't help but think the differences between cultures in this regard have something to do with the way families and the local community were provisioned back in earlier times when these traditions were formed. This practice only makes sense if at some time all families received the same portion from the government, which meant that everyone had what they need on their own, in which case it would understandably be considered rude to intrude upon someone else's equal portion.

This also indicates a high score on the socialist scale, and a low score on the religious scale. Comparatively, more religious societies, no matter their familial wealth or status, have strong traditions of helping and even sacrificing for neighbors, guests, and strangers. So I would surmise, just from this Swedish tradition, that their cultural roots are relatively socialist and godless. Cultural Anthropology 201.

In Western Russia, we don't invite people into our homes unless they are family. And then not very often.

From western US and Alaska, and the first thing is ALWAYS ask if they want a drink. Historically it was law to provide water to anyone at your door. Food comes if you happen to be there when they eat... some people wait hours for guests to leave if they don't have anything to share so they dont eat in front of them.
