Yet another American rants about having to remove shoes in Swedish homes

I have mentioned before the peculiar thing that American ex-pats in Japan seem to love removing their shoes in Japanese homes and tend to adopt the custom, while Americans living in Sweden seem to find the custom abhorrent and objectionable.

Karen, an American ex-pat actually went to the trouble of writing a five-part dissertation on removing shoes in Sweden. It does contain some strong language.

thanks Celeste! I actually went to the trouble to write a 5 part essay on the value of shoes ON and you think that is unusual? and you have been posting "solely" on this issue since 2006?!
you give me the strength to believe firther in my convictions!
Vive la difference!

Karen
