We had traditional Varlborg night food of salmon (surprise), potatoes (surprise) and asparagus (family tradition).
This was to be my first Valborg night celebration. I can’t remember where I usually am on 30 April, but this 30 April I was on a west coast beach ready to experience another Swedish tradition.
And I wasn’t alone. The year-round residents came, maybe some other people were from out of town like us.
There was poetry and more songs and a speech….and we listened.
But the bonfire tradition was broken this year as the fire department said it was too windy for a fire. And I’m sure they were right.
But we took advantage of the social event to have fun anyway.
So we came home and had our own fire.
What a nice night! Nice things happen to me in Sweden.
