Hyttsillsafton

Glass factories were not only places of work but also served as social centres for meetings, debates and more festive activities like singing. It was customary in these instances to bake sill (herring) after work using the leftover heat from the furnace (hytt). Some glass factories host "Hyttsillsafton", where you can experience this tradition. Apart from sill, the menu includes Småland's specialty sausages, baked potatoes, beer, mineral water, cheese cake, coffee and tea.
