Midsummer Day History
Midsummer Day represents the high point of summer and the longest day of the year. In many parts of the Scandinavian and Nordic countries, the sun does not set for days or weeks. The celebrations of Midsummer can be traced back to ancient times and the religious and spiritual elements of the day are often associated with fertility and love. The festivities take place in the countryside, meaning the city streets are deserted for a brief period of time.
Midsummer is celebrated all over northern Europe, the origins are pre-Christian. It is also a celebration of St John, a Christian feast day, this is incorporated into modern times when people eat and drink a lot with friends or family. Midsummer in many countries such as Finland and Sweden falls on June 25 in 2016.
