How have I missed Midsommer's all my life?!
This holiday was so much better than I had ever imagined. For those of you unfamiliar with Midsummer's, it takes place on the longest day of the year and is a national holiday here in Sweden. Think 4th of July or Canada Day, but better. The day is made up of lots of delicious food and drinks, a maypole, games (we only made it though one because everyone got lost on the scavenger hunt, haha), more food, dancing and lots of drinking and stories. I haven't had much Swedish food before so this was my chance, I got it all! Swedes like to drink on Midsummer so a lot of that went on too. Schnapps is the drink of midsummer's and before every toast a song has to be sung. Lots of songs were sung. We partied into the wee hours...daylight hours because it doesn't get dark here! All in all it was an amazing day, with a lot of great new friends thanks to Jenny. Thanks Axel and family for having us!
