'Been working all day, just got home to enjoy my herrings and potatoes; strawberries and ice cream. Surprised not to find a thread celebrating midsummer!?! It's a big holiday here in Sweden so 'Glad midsommar' (Happy Midsummer) to you all!

Glad midsummer to everyone in Scandinavia!

As a matter of interest, I'm over in Stockholm in a couple of weeks. Will I be able to get any sleep? Or is it perma-daylight?

Midsummer is not celebrated much in the u.s. and other such western countries, christianity pretty much killed that one as a "pagan" holiday. Funny how most other christian holidays are on the same day as "pagan" holidays....lol.

I am actually feeling sad and depressed that the days are only getting shorter. Tomorrow will be 4 seconds shorter than today where I live. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif Major bumer.

Stockholm will have some five hours of darkness in mid summer. To have 24 hour daylight, you'll have to north of the Arctic Circle. I spent my army days in Finnmark (extreme north of Norway), and had big problems sleeping in the summer.

Told my wife about that old legend about running naked to pond to see her future bridegroom.
Meantime, I'm able to read these stupid threads http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

Happy Midsummer all, especially a certain mr. Shakespeare, with all this beer I have met nasty Puck already.
