Mid Summer’s Eve June 21, 2007Posted by Rambling Man in General Bloggery.
Today is the Mid Summer solstice and an excuse for half the world to go stone mad. Well, the Scandinavians do anyway and since I am married to one, today is no ordinary June day.
The Swedes and the Danes in particular, love a bit of a party on this day. All pagans the lot of them. Take a look here at some of the things they get up to – dancing around the sweeping brush, eating dead fish, drinking gripe water and witch burning … nothing like a bit of controlled arson !
Grattis på Midsommar min kära …
