Your in-laws are tipsy and can't stop talking about pickled herring? Everyone's pretending they're little frogs? Lasse the neighbour suggests you all go skinny-dipping at midnight? It's probably Midsummer's Eve. Share your best stories with The Local.


Sweden's famous (or infamous?) Midsummer's Eve festivities have been unusually subdued during the pandemic. But that won't stop us reminiscing about our first experiences of this night of summer, flowers and, sometimes, debauchery.

Fill out the short form below and we'll read out the best stories in the next episode of our Sweden in Focus podcast. We may also share some of your stories in an article on the site.
