Today is Midsummer, we're celebrating the longest days of the year, solstice, but Midsummer is always celebrated on a Friday and it's a national holiday. If you have never been up in the Nordics you should come just to see the joy of constant light, and to celebrate summer. We dance around a maypole and eat herring and drink snaps. I've heard that people that see our festivities for the first time, find it to be a very odd experience, grown up people dancing around a May Pole. Midsummer is also often the kick off for the traditional five weeks of vacation that you have with your family. A day of pure joy with the kids, flower crowns and hopefully some sunshine. Midsummer is also about romance, an old saying says "Midsummer night is not long but it sets many cradles to rock" and if you are single you can pick seven flowers and put it under your pillow and the person you will dream about be your next partner. Let's celebrate life, and be thankful for what we have today, we don't know what's going to happen tomorrow.
