The name was taken from the real-life St. Olaf Township in southern Minnesota established in 1869 and named after Olaf II of Norway, home to just 332 in 2000 Census, formerly Oxford, located in Otter Tail County, MN. On the series, St. Olaf was neighbors with St. Gustaf, and there was also a town called \\"Beaver Falls\\" nearby. There is also a real life Beaver Falls Township in Minnesota. The towns of St. Olaf and St. Gustaf had two Minnesota colleges, St. Olaf College and Gustavus Adolphus Col...
According to Rose, St. Olaf is a Norwegian farming settlement in northern Minnesota, known on local license plates as \\"Big Statue Country\\". The town can be reached by train from Minneapolis to Tyler's Landing, changing at St. Gustav (St. Olaf's sister city and dubbed \\"The City that Never Naps\\") with the final leg completed by toboggan.You may also fly to St. Gustav and transfer to a train and then donkey cart service that takes 2-3 days. Additionally, a \\"Yokel Service\\" is available for those...
A Norwegian farming settlement in Minnesota, it was according to Rose, \\"founded by the man who came up with the idea of canning tuna in its own juices\\" named Heinrich von Andredunen who was celebrated every year with a parade of townsfolk dressed as cans of tuna and jars of mayonnaise. Its population, she related, could all be traced back to the same brother and sister, and are required by law to sign a pledge at the age of 15 to promise they will not do anything \\"wild, crazy and impetuous,\\"...
During the show's seven-year run, St. Olaf was only seen twice in flashbacks and once when the girls visited during an episode in which Rose was nominated for St Olaf's Woman of the Year award, ultimately winning a gold trophy, or rather, a milk chocolate trophy wrapped in gold colored foil.The town was nevertheless referred to in almost every episode through Rose's protracted and comic (yet almost entirely irrelevant) anecdotes about its eccentric inhabitants, bizarre customs, and peculiar h...
St. Olaf appears to be a bilingual town with a significant amount of unique vocabulary (that may be specific to the area and not appearing in standard Norwegian). Rose uses these phrases quite often, to the exasperation of her roommates. Examples include Gerkanenaken (when dog feces turn white), Tutenbobels (buttocks), Ugel and Flugel (a Hide and seek game for adults) and Vanskapkaka (a special \\"friendship\\" cake; this word, however, is based on the Swedish word \\"vänskapskaka\\", which holds the...
St. Olaf's cuisine is heavily influenced by Viking tradition and often includes herring. 1. Sperhüven Krispies, a foul-smelling Scandinavian midnight snack. They are eaten with one hand closing the nostrils and one hand popping a Krispy into the mouth. Even though they smell horrible, they taste like cheesecake, fresh strawberries, and chocolate ice cream. 2. Maple Syrup Honey Brown Sugar Molasses Rice Krispies log. A favorite of Rose and her family that, as the name implies, is incredibly su...
St. Olaf is still occasionally mentioned by Garrison Keillor as the neighboring town to Lake Wobegon, Minnesota, in his weekly public radio show, A Prairie Home Companion.
1. When St. Olafians turn 15, they are forced to sign a pledge not to do wild things. It keeps people from painting their house in silly colors. 2. Hay Day: the celebration of hay 3. The Crowning of the Princess Pig 4. The Day of the Wheat: everyone in town dresses like sandwiches 5. The Festival of the Dancing Sturgeons: the townsfolk watch sturgeons flopping around on the dock 6. St. Sigmund's Day: a celebration where a headless boy is a central figure
1. The Swinson Brothers: Two brothers who were almost neutered by a doctor/vet who started to drink hot liniment. 2. Alice: Rose's family cow who was involved in a nasty plowing accident. The punishment for the kids on the farm if they have done something bad is to milk Alice, since she had to sit on a stool. 3. Toby: Rose's family cow before Alice. He was too old, gotten a fever and gone deaf. Not to be confused with a horse, also named Toby. 4. Larry: Rose's one-eyed pig. 5. Lars: A man wi...
