Midsummer is my favorite Swedish Holiday! I mean what’s not to love- there’s flower crowns, endless strawberries, dancing and singing around a flowered pole, good food, and family. So what if it almost always is chilly and often rainy it’s still the lightest time of the year so at least it’s never dark! This year was extra rainy, windy, and chilly but that didn’t stop us from celebrating the twins very first midsummer in Sweden!
Rain could not stop me from making flowered crowns for me and the twins…
A little cracker bribery never hurts to get toddlers to pose for pics with crowns on their heads that they were not enthusiastic about wearing.
When food alone does not keep them still, resort to showing them videos of themselves…
Midsummer Eve smårgasbord lunch!
When it’s so windy and rainy that the local midsummer pole dancing and singing is cancelled- make your own pole!
Then the sun peaked through!
Max’s favorite was the “rocket clapping song” that he did over and over again on his own after the dancing was done.
Midsummer day was also a birthday celebration so of course a strawberry topped cake was in order!
Hoppas ni alla hade en riktigt trevlig midsommar mer!
