Sitsfest is a typical feast of academic students in the Nordic countries. Students eat, sing drinking songs, toasts and also follow shows and sits usually have some kind of theme, which defines the dress code. Toastmasters lead the event, give directions and guide the party people through the feast. In Sits there are some rules and standards that need to be followed. The rules and other directions are often told in the Sits’ invitation. There is also food usually served.
