From Sweden with Love? Hugging Etiquette

Published fredag 30 november 2007 kl 10.10

Before you start hugging every Swede you know, a new study could let you in on a few etiquette secrets.

Hugging someone in mourning is a given here in Sweden, as is grabbing someone who just found your wallet into a firm embrace. But if you’re mingling at a party, keep your affection to yourself.

The Swedish Red Cross carried out the study, which suggested that 9 out of 10 Swedes will hug on a weekly basis - and they’re not discriminating either - any warm body, provided it’s not their boss, will do.
