Midsommar

20 Jun

June means maypoles!

It’s that time of year again – when Swedes gather round flowered phallic symbols, dance while hopping like frogs, light bonfires, drink schnaps and eat baby potatoes!

If you want to join in the fun, check out this list of places to party (Google translated from Sydsvenskan) or this one from the Lunds kommun site. Read all about a past midsommar experience here.Image
