While many of my Swedish friends and family celebrate midsummer we’re doing the opposite over here. Back home it’s the longest day of the year and the sun doesn’t set until long after 10PM in most parts of the country. Here on the other hand it’s the shortest day of the year so we headed up to the Blue Mountains to join in on the annual Winter Festival that’s held in Katoomba. It’s a community driven event with street performances, live music and one kick as parade and other happenings all through the day. The participants are encourage to dress in costumes to so we brought fellow vikings Sofia and Dan with us to! Magic day in the mountains I tell you, more parades and costumes for the people.
