MIDSUMMER The national day of Sweden is celebrated on the 6th of June. However, if you ask one of the Swedes, they would say that is falls between 19th and 26th of June. This is because, this is the time when the people show their best manners, the capital of the country Stockholm gets deserted as most of the people escape from the city life to spend a week in a tent on a island or the countryside. People start consuming alcohol at the breakfast and women wear flowers on their heads. People spend the day dancing mostly around the maypole on children songs and are usually dressed in flowers. No matter what your age is or where you are from, you will end up spending the day dancing and picking wild flowers, eating fresh potatoes made with dill along with Swedish meatballs and pies. You will also sing while doing all these.
