Dancing is considered as sports among some people and dancing in a very specific way is one of the things we do at the Swedish Midsummer Holiday this Friday.
We celebrate Midsummer because it is the longest day of the year in Sweden. In northern part of Sweden where I live, the sun never goes down this time of year.
A tradition is to cover a wooden cross with birch leaves and flowers. We put this cross in the middle of the lawn and everybody dances around it hand in hand. We usually do a very special dance called "The silly frogdance". Preferably this is done to live accordion music.
The party continues often to the morning after.
So from all of us in Sweden to all visitors from here and from abroad, we like to wish you a HAPPY MIDSUMMER!
