Friday fun: how many celebrates Midsummer holiday or is this a Swedish tradition only? Edited

Deleted user Jun 19, 2018

Any other country that celebrates Midsummer holiday (this friday 22 June)?

Hej Ulrika!

In Germany we don't have a holiday for the solstice. A quick read-up revealed to me, that apparently some pats of Germany do have cultural-ish festivities. I have only lived in Lower Saxony and we never had celebrations other than those of a commonly known large furniture store. I believe our Maifest is celebrated similarly in some aspects. Then again, I'm not a Midsommar specialist. ;-)

tl;dr: For my understanding, Midsommar to a Swedish extent is a Swedish/Scandinavian thing.

Hej då!

I also thought it was a Swedish/Scandinavian thing. We celebrate it tomorrow. And it is the only day of the year that we are sure that it is going to rain a lot. :-)

Hi @[deleted]! I wish we did -- it seems like such a nice way to celebrate the longest day of the year! 

As far as I know my family in the Netherlands does not celebrate this either, but we do celebrate Sinterklaas on December 5.

Happy Midsummer! 🌞

Thanks.

I do, but it is a super informal thing, and isn't a standard holiday.  For my friends and I it just involved heading to the beach, to hang out and have a bonfire that evening, just spending the longest day with the people we enjoy hanging out with.
