Why do we celebrate Midsummer?
Orginally, the midsummer celebration was in honour of John the Baptist, and later also marked breakpoint in the working year for a peasant society. Midsummer’s Eve was considered to invoke magical powers and supernatural beings. If you place seven different kinds of wild flowers under your pillow during the night of Midsummer’s Eve, you will dream about your next love according to legend.The Midsummer pole is main feature of the celebrations and is decorated with birch leaves and flowers.
