This weekend is the Midsummer holiday in Sweden, celebrating the longest day of the year (remember – they’re pretty far North so sunlight and warmth are not taken for granted). It’s as important as Christmas, and Steve’s Swedish colleagues who have been in the States went home last week to be with their families. It party time all over Scandinavia where one can dance until dawn, don folk costumes and dance around a leaf-covered maypole, or just have a barbecue and spend the time with family. (This is my favorite account.)
