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!
