Midsummer in the Nordics

How to Enjoy Midsummer a Little More Nordicly

"Traditions help cement continuity as a society. 

They are celebrations and customs handed down from one generation to the next"

Else Marie Kofod

The Royal Danish Library


Midsummer is the very best time in the Nordic region, in my opinion.  Long days of blue sky and sun, fields of wild flowers, trees in full leaf and long lingering afternoons and evenings with friends and family.

Sounds like a Scandinavian summer dream, doesn't it?

But you don't need to live in the Nordics to have a Nordic style midsummer that lingers on long past the end of June.

  • Do you want to celebrate midsummer but have no idea where to start?

  • Does the sound of a midsummer celebration seem like an exciting and very Nordic thing to do?  You are right, it is!!

  • Maybe you feel drawn to Nordic traditions and Scandinavian heritage

  • Do you want to welcome some of those special Nordic traditions into your life?

There's a mysticism and magic about Midsummer that many of us are drawn to regardless of our background.  The Nordic way of celebrating that precious time of year is something we can all enjoy.

But of course there is!
Our ancestors celebrated Midsummer thousands of years before us.
It's in our blood.

In the Nordic countries they have kept that magic alive at Midsummer.
Everyone takes part and shares that special connection to their past in ways we have begun to lose in other parts of the world.

In my new e-guide, I share with you the myriad ways that beloved midsummer traditions are enjoyed and kept alive in the Nordic countries.
