Happy midsummer!

IMG_2010

Today is the day when the Swedes eat plenty of pickled herring, new potatoes with dill and chives and wash it down with plenty of aquavit (snaps). Dessert is usually a strawberry cream cake or just simply strawberries and cream.

It is also tradition to raise a maypole to dance around and since it is the longest day of the year people usually party until early morning.

Even though I haven’t properly celebrated Midsummer for five years, this year I am a bit sad on missing out. But I hope my Swedish friends will celebrate for me to.

Happy Midsummer! And skål!
