1. You thought Astrid Lindgren was immortal and were shocked and cried your heart out when she actually did die.
2. You think that everything Astrid Lindgren ever wrote, sums up all the good things about being Swedish.
3. You secretly believe you'll come to Nangiala when you die.
4. You KNOW that Harry Potter will NEVER EVER be close to as good a read as Pippi Longstocking.
5. You get REALLY annoyed when people outside of Sweden do not know that Pippi Longstocking is Swedish.
6. You know what "sockerdricksträdet" is and you wish that you owned it.
7. You know who Nils Holgersson is and you know it was Selma Lagerlöf and not Astrid Lindgren who wrote the book about him.
8. Even though jumping into hay bales is really gross you still do it and love it only because "Bullerby Barnen" did it.
9. You don't think it's weird that a children's book talks about a penis measuring contest (snoppmätartävling) like in 'Berts dagbok'.
10. You know who Bamse is, and love him with all your heart and got surprised when you were told he’s not famous elsewhere.
