Glad Midsommar!

Glad Midsommar to all my Swedish friends! For others, Midsommar is the celebration of the summer solstice, the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere. Today I met up with a bunch of cool people, thanks to Jocelyn from ‘TheDailyJoce’, to join in the celebrations at Vitabergparken. The maypole was set up in the amphitheater, there was food & drinks on offer, and some fun games for kids, too. But the parts I liked best was the flower wreaths and crowns and maypole dancing to cute & funny traditional songs. The weather threatened a bit of a downpour but thankfully held off. There was even some sunshine to accompany the song & dance for a brief spell. It might still be below 15°C in Stockholm, but it’s official now – Summer is here! Glad Midsommar!

    • Hey Rebecca, you will have your day in about 6 months, when the axis tilts the other way 😉
      And trust me, the Winter solstice in this part of the world is way darker & colder 😛
