Camping at Baker Lake near mts. Baker and Shuksan.
Test driving ultrawides on the Nikon D600; this was the 20-40 Tamron SP I believe. Also test-driving our 'new' E.Bauer tent.

Today is a big day for all swedish campers! The government announce the annual christmas gift every year this time. And today, they have announced the stove as annual christmas gift. Due to corona situation they have predicted that this will be it! :) Fantastic. Soon maybe we will see more people enjoying the nature.

So, of course we had to celebrate that today by going out for lunch at work and use them! :drinks:

How does this work? Does the govt. give everybody a stove? Or is it an official gift you are supposed to buy and give others?

yes, I am curious too: is it a gift to citizens from the government or is it the "officially suggested" gift for people stuck for ideas?

It is some buyers association which has analyzed the year gone and came up with this. There are some requirements, it must be something that has been popular at the time, in some way and also represent the time we live in.
It is nothing more than a funny thing, they speculate on this. It is not a gift you get, not even supposed to buy. It is only a thing they came up with to stimulate the prognosis of just that association :) (read that now, didn't know it)

As a citizen I think it is just a funny thing to guess what is becoming the annual gift. Year 2017 I had correct with the e-bike! :)
There is also, of course, interesting to see afterwards if just that proposed gift actually was the best-seller to christmas :)

Here is the news article from one of the biggest newspapers:
