Are merry-go-rounds culturally different?

The other day I learnt that merry-go-rounds in Sweden, as well as in the rest of Europe, generally turn clockwise whereas they in North America run counter-clockwise! A search on Google confirms this. Reality? Even though I’ve been an expatriate in both locations I must admit I don’t know; I never thought about it. What are your experiences? Comments please – let’s solve this expat problem!

  1. Hmm… the children’s carousel at Liseberg moves counter clockwise I think – made in the Us perhaps?
