#16 andré & anders – a midsummer night’s dream

These first and beautiful summer months are in Sweden a time of many traditional celebrations. This week, André and Anders talk about Midsummer, the ancient celebration of the longest day of the year. One might perhaps want to call it the bigger and better brother of the celebration of Valborg, discussed a few weeks ago. Better indeed, with regards to its dedication to food. Herring and strawberries crown this annual great party.

Försommaren är i Sverige en tid för många traditionella firanden. Den här veckan pratar André och Anders om den urgamla traditionen midsommar, firandet av årets längsta dag. Man skulle kanske kunna kalla midsommar den större och bättre brodern till Valborg som diskuterades för några veckor sedan. Bättre, helt klart, när det gäller maten. Sill och jordgubbar kröner denna årliga jättefest.
