Weird traditions

In Sweden we celebrate midsummer. I don’t really know why we celebrate it but use to sing and dance around a grass thing that looks like something else. During the evenings we eat fish and potatoes and then other food. To that we drink liquor that taste worse than medicine for your neck but we do that with joy. We sing songs before drinking it.

Sometimes we drink a little to much of these so we get drunk and our singing voice sounds worse the more the time goes.

Sometimes girls pick seven kinds of flowers to lay under the pillow. Then they will dream who they will marry.

This year I celebrated the tradition with my boyfriend and his family and their friends. Yes at the end of the evening I was a bit drunk but I had a good time! I must say that I like our traditions even though they are a bit similar to each other.

Behind me there is a sign that says “You are a fine human “.
