What is Snörsjöaorden?

Helsingborgs-Landskrona Nation’s annual ball is called Snörsjöaorden, and takes place on the first Saturday of October (this year, October 1st). It is held to commemorate the land area - a bog, actually - that was donated to the Nation in the 1940:s by a former member, Emy Ekberg. 1976 is the year when Snörsjöaorden started. The first ball was not held until the following year, 1977, which means that the 2016 edition of Snörsjöaorden is the 39th ball. However, this year it is 40 years ago since the order was formed!
