Thursday word of the day: Fika

Fika: a Swedish verb roughly meaning "to take a coffee break".

In Sweden it is a social institution and more broadly means taking a break from work or other activities and having a coffee with friends, colleagues, a date or family. Derived from kaffi, an earlier variant of the Swedish word kaffe ("coffee").

I love the word of the day. Any day is a good day for a fika.
