Celebrating midsummer

Hello bloggers!

Friday is a very special day in Sweden.
Because we are celebrating mid-summer.
Means dancing, eating and meeting the families.

A marguerite crown is a must every mid-summer.
Picture is taking last year in my MIL place outside Gothenburg.
A place where you can find peace and lot´s of meadow flowers.
It´s a perfect place to celebrate mid-summer. 

The traditional dance around in the mid-summer pole.
Every villages in Sweden had there owned design pole 
and it depend on there belief and tradition.
But the most common one is the one with crowns with crossbars.
Symbols for health, fertility and bright future.

Happy Weekend! The term mid-summer reminds of me of a novel, I just can't remember the exact title.

Very interesting. I didn't know about this celebration at all. Summer is summer in my city. It's mostly cold and foggy. The few days that we get warm weather is like a blessing to us San Franciscans.
