Around the world, Midsommar or Solstice has been celebrated since the 12th century. As one of the most traditional pagan rituals, Midsommar celebrates the longest day in the Northern Hemisphere.
More than anywhere, the celebration is a huge part of society in the Nordic states where the short, dark days of winter are forgotten and replaced with the warm light-filled days and the fruits and harvests of summer.
In Sweden, Midsommar is a core tradition. And across the globe, Swedes celebrate by coming together to dance, share food and, of course, drinks.
