Midsommer Eve (FIN / SWE) History
Midsummer is a celebration of the shortest night day and longest day of the year. In the northern hemisphere, this is a time for celebration as their northern position means that come the winter solstice, they will be without sunlight. At this holiday, the sun does not set in some of the most northerly parts. The celebration has Pagan origins and encompasses fertility rituals. Before celebrating Scandinavian’s take time to clean their houses and decorate them with flowers and other plants. Traditional food is served and the weekend is full of outdoor parties.
This holiday is observed on a Saturday between the 20th and 26th of June. Midsummer Eve is on June 24.
