When the sun never sets, and the kids are on summer holiday. When holidays are waiting around the corner and meadows explode with wood cranesbill. That’s when long lines of cars queue up to get out of the cities. It’s time to go find tranquillity with friends and family in summer houses and holidays homes, away from the hustle and bustle. It’s time to celebrate the most important holiday of the summer. It’s midsummer.
The summer solstice is the longest day of the year and the sun reaches its highest position in the sky. This is when we celebrate Midsummer Eve, every year sometime between the 19th and the 25th of June. Above the Arctic Circle, where the sun never sets, Midsummer Eve is celebrated all day and all night under the light of the midnight sun.
