So this afternoon I'm heading down south this afternoon to celebrate properly with friends. I love getting involved in these celebrations, learning about a new cultural tradition alongside drinking and eating is really my kinda fun! Basically Midsommar happens on the summer solstice here - and it feels like the sun barely sets. It doesn't get truly dark! And if you had spent anytime during the winter here - you would know why the sun and light are celebrated with such vigour this weekend.
All is explained in this video - Midsommar for dummies!!
Meanwhile how amazing is the sunset on a perfectly still lake? I'll take a pass on tropical islands any day - this is my idea of paradise :)
