Happy Midsummer 2012!

Tomorrow is Midsummer Eve, one of the main Swedish traditions! Here you can read about how it is usually celebrated. There will be (at least) two traditional Midsummer celebrations, with dancing around the maypole, in Borås. One in Ramnaparken and one in Almenäs, both starting at 1 pm. As nearly every year the weather forecast is promising some rain and cloudy sky for Midsummer Eve but this should not discourage you from joining the celebrations.
Tomorrow is not a public holiday but most people are off work, Midsummer's Day on Saturday however is a public holiday. Glad midsommar!
