Friday Photo: Glad Midsommar!

with 3 comments

It’s Sweden’s official celebration of midsommar this weekend, which is of course leading to major withdrawal symptoms for me. Pickled herring, potatoes and plenty of Aquavit are key players in celebrating the return of the sun during this ultimate of traditions. And of course the never-setting sun. So it’s off to listen to Monica Zetterlund and dream of sitting around a table in the Swedish countryside singing “helan gΓ₯r.”

  1. Just as long as you keep the lutefisk at bay.

    And – they have alcohol in Sweden now? Well, okay, I knew they *had* it, but nobody could get their hands on it without a 16-month waiting list and a signed document from the local Chief of Police attesting that you were a person of good moral character.

    I know this to be true. Don’t deny it.
