I come from a country where large parts of the media,cultural, and political elite nowadays seriously claim that Sweden has no culture of it´s own. Obviously all traditions I grew up with (christmas,easter,valborg,midsummer, and so on...) including all our national writers(August Strindberg),musicians(Evert Taube) and painters(Anders Zorn) really never meant anything and had no clear connection to our country and it´s nature. If you try to explain that to someone from an other country they just don´t understand what you mean.
