There was an old Soviet slogan for children: "Sun, air, and water are our best friends". This exercise reminded it strongly.

Funny how the word sun is spelled the same in Portuguese and Swedish (sol)

Same in Spanish too

    In English, whenever you have a list of more than two words [for example: sun, wind, and water], you put a comma between each and before "and". Is this different in Swedish?

    Actually, it's rare to find a comma before the "and" in English, except the US. Funnily enough, it's called 'The Oxford Comma', because it's used in Oxford (but rarely elsewhere in the UK). There's a pretty cool TED talk about it, if you're interested. http://ed.ted.com/lessons/grammar-s-great-divide-the-oxford-comma-ted-ed

    The Oxford Comma is preferred in Canada as well.

    Yes, in Swedish there is never a comma before the final "and". Ett, två och tre.

    This sounds a lot like a Vattenfall motto
