Finnish midsummer night traditions.
Who'd have believed it? It's already midsummer! It seems like it was -20 C and 50 cm snow only a minute ago. Or well, a week. A month, at most. And here I have just bought netting for the windows to keep the wasps out ...
... anyway, here's a few midsummer night traditions.
Now, that's what I call practical thinking.
Then there's all the traditions with a big midsummer fire: in Finland this goes back hundreds of years, to one of the old gods, Ukko. If it's calm enough we'll have a midsummer fire, too, but it'll be much too large to jump over it.
Because traditions are cool I've done the 7 flowers thing almost every year. If I've dreamt of anybody I've managed to forget all about it before morning, though, every time.
