Midsummer has the longest daytime in a year. At the north part of Sweden, nightless summer comes around the midsummer time. Eve of the midsummer, traditionally people get gathered to pray for our lives and the good harvest. The maypole is the symbol of spirits who make crops grown and bring men themselves. So people has been celebrating with dancing and singing around the maypole. Today the festivals are all over Sweden on that day and it is a lovely day to mingle with family and friends with nice food and drinks.
On Sweden Day, we will make the maypole together and then we will start dancing and singing around it.≫ moreMay 27, 2013
