Ikea, Swedish giant retail store is going to celebrate Swedish crayfish party on Friday, August 17, 2013 in the U.S. Many buffet tickets have already been sold out in many stores, including all-you-can-eat crayfish and shrimp in their shells and other lip-smacking delicacies.

In Sweden crayfish festival is fun. The whole country is fashioned in crayfish – shops selling crayfish printed products, lanterns decorated in crayfish, glasses, plates especially for crayfish servings and many more. This red crustacean suddenly becomes a central figure among Swedish people.

In Sweden, tasty shellfish is accompanied with merry-making beverages. August starts with parties and celebration of catching the shellfish, they call it kräftor. The U.S crayfish, often called crawfish are boiled in brine typically like American cooks. These fish are savored cold along with other food. The boiling crayfish soup is also much relished by Americans.

With the summer end in Sweden, homes are in festive mood with friends and families gathered together for Crayfish Party. This is a simple party but lots of fun and merry-making when people gather together and eat crayfish, drink and enjoy the last touches of summer. In Sweden it is called Kräftskiva.

In August, at the end of the summer, it is traditional in Sweden to gather friends and family for a Crayfish Party. What is a Crayfish Party, you might ask? Simply put, it is a dinner party where you gather to eat crayfish, drink and enjoy the last weeks of summer. In Swedish, a crayfish party is called a Kräftskiva, and if you are in Sweden in August you can be sure to hear a lot of talk about Kräftskivor! It is perfectly conventional to tear your crayfish with slurping noise and extract the juicy meat inside the shellfish. Mostly parties are held in outdoors with decoration of colorful paper lanterns, tablecloth and fashioned comic hats on heads. Strong cheese and beer are the most favorite side dishes along with delicious crayfish.
The risk of overfishing made crayfish safe whole year except in the late summer till 20th century. Crayfish Party concept came from this time when these shellfish lovers gathered together to savored the freshly caught crustaceans. People generally celebrate it in the early August and stretch it throughout the month. Earlier it was much fun when people went to catch crayfish themselves; these days, lots of crayfishes are available in supermarket, importing from China and the U.S. However, nationality comes first so does the consensus that the Swedish crayfish is the tastier.
