Swedish Midsummer Celebration

Every year in June, Swedes celebrate “Midsommar”. We make flower crowns, dance around a may pole (majstang), sing songs and dance different dances. People also dress up in traditional clothing, and everyone no matter age participates. I had so much fun celebrating my Midsummer in NYC this year, introducing the tradition to all the non Swedish friends that I have here. We had a blast listening to Swedish songs and dancing around the may pole together. We spent half of the day at my friends terrace making the flower crowns, and later we joined the Swedish Midsummer Celebration in Battery Park.
