What fun it must be to dance around a pole during the Swedish Midsummer celebrations, flowers in your hair and singing songs while drinking unsweetened, flavoured schnapps. Watching the sunrise with someone special in the early hours of the next morning, holds the promise of a perfect happy ever after.
In her romance novel "Go Steal a Bridegroom", author Denise Lawrence transports you right into the Swedish Midsummer celebrations where song, butterflies and love fill the air - and a good deal of misunderstandings.

In 2019, Midsummer will be celebrated on 22nd June. Still one month to go, so there's plenty of time to organise the trip. If you're not lucky enough to have a private Midsummer party invitation, you could join the celebrations at the Stockholm open air museum park Skansen, at Gunnebo castle and gardens in Gothenburg, or in many public parks.
