Midsummer Day

Good morning everyone! Today is midsummer which is a very special Swedish holiday. I’m really looking forward to the day that I will spend together with G and our friends E and N and their two kids.

Midsummer is a Swedish holiday where we celebrate the Swedish summer and is an very old tradition in Sweden where we dance abound the midsummer pole that in fact is a symbol of fertility and sing songs about the little frogs (små grodorna is the Swedish song title) and the fox that runs over the ice (räven raskar över isen is the Swedish song title). All quite strange texts when I reflect upon it and most things of this have designated dance moves.

Then we eat the traditional Swedish holiday food such as herring, meatballs, salmon and potatoes. To this it’s tradition to drink schnapps and other beverages. 

It’s also a day there the girls and women wear flowers in their hair and the days the the Swedish people are celebrating the most that they are Swedes.

So from me to all of you readers have a nice midsummer day!
