Midsommar is a community celebration of the summer solstice that is especially popular in Scandinavia. An ancient holiday rooted in paganism, it was originally celebrated as a fertility festival, comprising the practice of rituals associated with nature with the hope for a good harvest the following autumn.
Festivities vary by region and entail such customs as decorating and dancing around a Maypole, making flower wreaths to wear, lighting bonfires, and eating plentiful amounts of herring and other fish, accompanied by the drinking of beer and snaps and the singing of drinking songs.
