Midsummer spirit- time to do some magic

Midsummer is one of the most important parties in Finnish culture. Midsummer is placed on this coming weekend and it is a national holiday. Mostly people gather together in their summer cottages and spend the long weekend relaxing with good company. During this weekend you barely see any people in cities.


Take a look of this video to get the impression:

Midsummer has some old traditions:

  • sauna & swimming
  • lightning bonfires – to keep evil spirits away
  • midsummer spells


Here are few spells that you can try during the coming weekend πŸ˜‰

  • put nine different flowers under your pillow and you will see your future spouse or his name in your dreams
  • if you roll naked on a dewy field you will meet your future spouse during the year
  • go standing on crossroads middle of midsummer night and you will meet your future spouse


and so on, the list goes on!
