Surstr?mming isn't a christmas tradition.
It is more like a late august,september tradition (or in summer together
with the season potatoes, onion and bread.)
the sale of this year surstr?mming was until 1998 legally delayed until
the third thursday in august (the herring is fished in early spring
Neither are selenium rectifiers a Christmas tradition--at least not in
any society that I know of.
Just trying to throw a little aroma into the mix. I suppose one could
also add durian for a memorably odoriferous experience.
I worked for a startup back around 2001 that liked to name their servers
after various fruits. When the Compaq Itanium box arrived, I was the
one that picked the hostname "durian" for it...
My family has a tradition of Doppa i Grytan on Christmas Eve. I think the
awesome smell of the fresh rye bread cancels out any burning rectifiers
or durian fruit by a long shot ;-)
