Question Is there really a place called St. Olaf?!

If so then is it really in minnesota,cuz that's were Rose says it's at.
What also puzzles me is where Rose's ancestery comes from,I could of sworn
she said she was scandinavian,that's the reason she said those weird words. But if St. Olaf is in minnesota then why would the people there talk like they are from out of the country?!

Every Christmas, PBS broadcasts a special with the St. Olaf Choir, and I always laugh when I see it, thinking of Rose and her St. Olaf stories!!!

The reason they would talk differently is because many scandinavians immigrated to the US for a period in the 1800's. A place where many, many Scandinavians moved, was Minnesota.

No problem, glad to be of help.

The word mentioned above "Vanskapkaka" when does Rose say that? Translated into swedish, that means "Friendship-cookie", all you need is an s after the p and two dots over the first a, "Všnskapskaka".
