Swedish midsummer

My mother Marlous and my aunt Helma Stockmann came to visit us in Gothenburg, which happened to coincide with the Swedish midsummer celebration. This is one of the most important traditions of Sweden and fun for foreigners to experience. I took my mother and Helma down to Slottsskogen where there was a Majstång, folk dance and lots of people. Many of them with flowers in their hair. On top of it, this was the first real warm summer day and we could outside until late at night enjoying a nice midsummer dinner.
