Midsummer Day

On the day before Midsummer Day, people seemed to go absolutely crazy over what they would buy – so everyone basically emptied the whole grocery stores... Most people seemed to pack their cars as full as possible and even beyond that so they could flee to their summer cottages from the hustle and bustle of the city. We decided to stay at home, because after everyone had gone to their summer cottages, the city was quite peaceful...

The morning started in a very colorful way for the sky seemed like it was on fire! In the morning and noon the sun peeked behind the clowds but went hidden there during the day. I was kind of waiting for sunnier day, but that didn’t really got me down at all!

The Midsummer Day went by nice and easy. We enjoyed the day at home with the cats. Nothing fancy.

Later we made hamburgers and spicy potato wedges. Eating them stretched quite late, though. But we weren’t actually even that tired for the whole night so it didn’t matter.

On Midsummer Days, you just have to stay up as late as possible to see the nightless night.
We were supposed to go and see were there any Midsummer bonfires (“kokko” in Finnish) but the clock was already so late that there must have not been any bonfires anymore...

I hope you all had a great Midsummer Day!
