Midsummer celebrations…you have to love it!

There was no workout yesterday as it was one of the most celebrated holidays by the swedes as well as one of the oldest traditions, Midsummer!!! So we started the day not as early as we had intended as me and my sister had a late night the evening before, a very good one 😉  We skipped the traditional herring lunch and the “snaps” as we focused on the strawberry cake and coffee at the venue where the local Maypole was decorated and later raised as we sang and danced.

When we got back home the sun finally made it through the clouds and we played some garden Yatzy before the kids stared digging for worms so they could go fishing…

With no luck we had to stick to our original dinner plans and we finished the evening very quietly for being midsummer. The kids in the neighborhood  ran around playing hide and seek and plenty of other games as the sun slowly sat on the longest day of the year so what  is there not to love about Swedish Midsummer…
