Don't forget to #fika this summer!
It comes as no surprise that Swedes are among the top consumers of coffee and sweets in the world.
Fika is much more than having a coffee. It is a a reason to set aside a moment for quality time. It is a tradition observed frequently, preferably several times a day.

Happy #Swedish #Midsummer 🎈(post 4/5) - After lunch it’s time to gather around the #maypole for ring dance. Kids and adults hold hands while singing and dancing and the afternoon usually continues with different games and competitions in the outdoors.

Happy #Swedish #Midummer 🎉 (post 3/5) - The food is of great importance for a successful Midsummer. The lunch usually consists of lots of fish and seafood. Pickled herring, buried salmon, pies, shrimp salad on crisp bread and freshly harvested potatoes are some of the traditional dishes being served, preferable accompanied by a spiced schnapps and a song. For dessert, there’s of course a strawberry cake or strawberries with fresh cream. Midsummer is a holiday celebrated in the outdoors and no matter what weather Midsummer brings you can be sure lunch is being served outside, so bring a jacket and an umbrella to be on the safe side. http://www.swedentips.se/herring-at-midsummer/
