Midsummer is a magical time and maybe you’ve heard about our Swedish Midsummer celebrations? For example pickled herring and dancing around the maypole? Other important details are boiled potatis & flower crowns! But midsummer is so much more than that, here are the myths and folklore behind our Swedish Midsummer celebrations!
This is the episode about the myths and magic regarding Swedish Midsummer. Everything from why you should roll around in the morning dew, to eating a salted herring backwards. And then of course my favorite, the myth of the 7 flowers and why you want to pick them in silence and tuck them under your pillow, at least if you’re single hoping to find your true love! I hope you enjoy this little episode of one of my favorite traditions!
