Yes, there is such a thing as Fika.

sweden, norway

Everyone enjoys taking a vacation from work when they can, but in Sweden, the concept is ingrained in society. Fika is a recognized break twice a day where workers share coffee, cake, and conversation. But, don't all workers take breaks? Fika is a social and almost compulsory thing in the Western world, despite the fact that many work breaks are simply theoretical in the Western world. So much so that in most workplaces, anyone who does not participate is deemed disrespectful. Perhaps this is why Swedish employees rank fourth in the world in terms of happiness!
