Biggest holiday in Sweden is coming up, actually it’s tomorrow! Go check out Swedish people dancing like frogs and being all silly! You can see them at Skansen and a few other parks in Stockholm.

What do they eat to get that crazy you might ask?

Most important foods on midsummer day are, the new fresh Swedish small potatoes, herring as always, and a varied selection of Swedish dishes as Västerbottenpaj, Matjessill, Gubbröra, Strawberries, Strawberry cake and the snaps, which is strong, spicy vodka. Probably this last ingredient is the one that make people dance around the midsummer pole.

If you didn’t have time to do all the cooking then you head down to the local fish and delicatessen shop to get the dishes. It’s usually crowded and full of people like a mini market on this day!
