The term “smorgasbord”, used to refer to a wide variety of things such as “the carnival was a smorgasbord of oddities and entertainment”, is derived from the Swedish word “smörgåsbord”, a traditional buffet style arrangement of a multitude of hot and cold foods typically laid out as a celebratory meal.
