Midsummer is by far the most beloved Swedish tradition. It’s the time of the year when the sun barely, if ever, sets. The perfect reason to escape the city with your friends, head out to the dreamy countryside, dress from head to toe in flowers, sleep with flowers, eat and sing all day, every day! As we’ve left the human sacrifices of the middle ages behind, now we mostly dance like frogs and swim in the ocean.
I spent my midsummer in my friend’s house on the west coast of Sweden. A much needed break from the preparations for the fall.
