Today is Swedish Midsummer, the one day of the year that it would be really cool to be in Sweden to “celebrate”. Just like many other Swedish holidays this one is all about getting drunk and dancing around a symbol, in this case the symbol is known as a Maypole. Tonight in just about every Swedish village there will be dancing to the tunes of the song “Little Frogs” while getting drunk on various versions of Akvavit.
I guess it sounds like a silly tradition if you have never been to a proper midsummer party I urge you to try it out.
Happy Midsummer to all of you!
