Giveaway time!!! Because it's Midsummer in Sweden in two weeks (June 24th) I felt a Midsummer theme would be appropriate for this Giveaway. I mean, to me there is nothing more Swedish than Midsummer! This means that the prizes consist of a few typical Midsummer items and some Swedish treats. The winner will be picked in a live broadcast drawing via my Ustream channel on Monday June 20th, I will be back with the exact time later.

Before I get into the details of this giveaway I want to share a bit about our Midsummer tradition. So Midsummer is a Swedish tradition we celebrate by dressing up a Midsummer pole with flowers and then dancing around it. A traditional Midsummer headwear on this day is a Midsummer flower crown. Some traditional food we eat on this day are pickled herring, boiled new potatoes and sour cream with fresh chives. To drink - snaps (shots) preferably P.O Andersson. Dessert always consist of strawberry cake.

My answer:

My favourite tradition is actually Midsummer Eve. It's such a fun, simple and family friendly tradition. With family and friends we eat good simple food, dance, play games and enjoy a snaps (shot) or two. A wonderful outdoor tradition indeed!
