Ascension Day and Sweden's National Day

Two public holidays in Sweden are coming up. Tomorrow is Ascension Day which is a Christian holiday celebrating Jesus’ ascension to heaven. It always occurs on the sixth Thursday after Easter Sunday. On Monday 6 June it is Sweden’s national day. You can read more about it here. In Borås there will be festivities at Seglora bygdegård at 2 pm and in Stadsparken at 3 pm. Friday is not a public holiday but a so called “klämdag” (a day between a holiday and a weekend – in Swedish “squeeze day”), which means that many people will be off work, giving them a long weekend.
