Holiday weekend

2 Jun

Have a good one!

This year, the Christian holiday Ascension Day (Kristi himmelsfärds dag) falls on June 2 and combines with the National Day of Sweden (Sveriges nationaldag) on June 6 to give a mega-holiday weekend,thanks to the Swedish habit of making any day in between holidays or weekends a klämdag (squeeze day) or unofficial holiday!

June 2 and 6 are two official helgdagar (“red days” (röd dagar) or “bank holidays”) , which means banks and many other businesses and services close up shop, including possibly over the squeeze days – double-check if you’re making any plans to go anywhere!

The best plan may just be to enjoy the early summer days and leave shopping to next week. Don’t forget to wear sunscreen!

    Wear sunscree in Sweden? Wish I needed it. Seriously though I did live there, now back to the UK, and unfortunately we don’t get so many holidays.

    I want to wear sunscreen right now, but the weather has turned nasty. Rain rain and more freakin’ rain!

    I absolutely love Sweden, it is rich in culture and the scenery is fantastic. My brother, wife and kids all live over there and I have enjoyed yearly visits now for a few years. The temperature has never been too hot when I go, but I can imagine it can get hot during the summer months.

    I love Sweden, but I also love holidays in Cyprus, where you really can wear your sunscreen .

    There is nothing better than soaking up the sun on holiday, there are loads of places now to shop for great deals and the best place to start has to be the internet.
