Swedish "Midsommar"

Source: "The Swedish Toolkit"

The relationship Swedes enjoy with alcohol can be surprising at first

The first time I came to Sweden

I wanted to explore the city at night

I saw beautiful blond Swedish women

In nice dresses

And men in suits

Crawling on the sidewalks

I wanted to help

People told me not to worry

That it was something called “Midsommar”

Raising and dancing around the "midsommarstång" is an activity that brings together Swedish families every year
