Celebrating Midsummer’s Day – In Sweden, the national summer holiday is Midsummer’s Day, when the sun never sets and Swedes dance around the maypole in celebration of nature at its best. In June 2013, Linda Meyer and her cousins celebrated Midsummer’s Day in Dalarna, Sweden, remembering the stories of celebration told by their grandmother who grew up in Sweden and shared the festivals of “the old country.” This program is a slideshow of Swedish “travel guide” experiences in reality with a group of 16 cousins in Sweden.
