No, no semla, I had to rush from work to the kids school for a performance there and then to their karate training so I forgot about the semlor but now a days they sell them almost all year long so it's not much of a tradition any more.
i can see you are a tough nut to argue with... ;-/ let's not get into "logic" too deeply it's out of at least MY league.
maybe the good thing about life (in general) is that you can decide, case by case, to either looks at something positive or negative, according to your momentary needs. if there is any principle in live that i find important, it would be the principle to question your principles every day. :-)
