Swedish National Day

Had a little gathering with some music and food at our roof top last night with some friends. Pre celebrating the Swedish National Day and G’s birthday which both are today the 6th of June. Where a great evening with some dance and singing as well. The guitar found it’s strange way to the roof and some Swedish songs might have been introduced to our Norwegian friends that I think found it quite amusing.

So what are we celebrating? In general Swedes are not as good at celebrating as their Norwegians neighbors. But that’s is probably because it’s more distant in history and that we had a different situation during the Second World War is my guess. In Sweden the 6th of June is also called the Swedish Flag Day and celebrates the independence from Denmark, that Gustav Vasa became kind and the constitution. We celebrate a lot of things. But it has only been a Swedish holiday since 2005.

So happy birthday Sweden!
