Happy Valborgsmässoafton!!

This is the night that Swedes gather round a jolly good bonfire and celebrate the spring. OK, why you ask?  Well here's what my friend Wikipedia says: Walpurgis bonfires are part of a Swedish tradition dating back to the early 18th century. At Walpurgis (Valborg), farm animals were let out to graze and bonfires (majbrasor, kasar) lit to scare away predators.
Tomorrow there will be song and First of May celebrations.  We're having one at our school actually and I can't wait to see the chldren in their flower crowns.  Happy May Day to all!  🌹🌸🌷🌼🌻🌺
