Swedens National day

Today we celebrate two things, the first Saturday after the opening up of the Cafés and bars in Paris. No I won’t use that opportunity tonight, but maybe go out and see how the French tackle the fact that they can sit outside with a bottle of wine. I guess, since it is the first weekend it will be too crowded.

The next celebration is the invented Swedish National day. A day we did not have a few years ago and since then the Government have worked hard to try to make the National day a “real” day to celebrate. Even if all Swedes know it is Midsummer people celebrate. And most Swedes of my generation actually hate the fact that to make this day a bank holiday they took away a holiday that always was a long weekend. Who celebrates 6th of June if you not free the day after? Seriously?

But it is what we have at the moment, and new Generations won’t remember the long weekend and might actually celebrate the 6th of June as the National day… Who knows.

Have a nice weekend

Björn
