tomorrow it’s Swedish midsummer

In modern Sweden, Midsummer’s Eve and Midsummer’s Day (Midsommarafton and Midsommardagen) were formerly celebrated on 23 June and 24 June, but since 1953 the celebration has been moved to the Friday and Saturday between 19 June and 26 June. It is one of the most important holidays of the year in Sweden, and probably the most uniquely Swedish in the way it is celebrated.
Kinda like this

the (sad?) thing is that this is not too far from the truth…
I’ll be working tomorrow – but yet again, I am working in a Swedish team… wonder if we’ll have a maypole in the office…
