in sweden we don’t wish you a happy birthday in the song, we wish that you live until you’re hundred and then we’ll shoot you and put you in a wheelbarrow to later be hung backwards on a horse only to then be drowned in a bottle of champagne, and i think that’s beautiful

We are not shitting you, we literally sing this.

7 BEAUTIFUL VIDEOS THAT’LL EXPLAIN SWEDISH MIDSUMMER (SORT OF)

videofymeexplore:

Escape town, wear white clothes and put some flowers in your hair. Add schnapps and you’re  almost there.

If you’re not as lucky as these turtle doves you’d have to put no more, and no less than 7 types of flowers under your pillow the day before midsummer, otherwise you WILL die alone.

Play weird non-sexual adult games which you can’t complete without getting shamefaced unless you’ve had several litres of prosecco and beer mixed with even more schnapps, and in the end they’ll result in a regretful sexual act.

Repeat while listening to Sweden’s analogy of Bruce Springsteen.

If you’re afraid you’ll end up the fifth wheel there’s only one way out, invite yet another single guy, hire some DJ equipment connected to an iPad  and introduce them.

Or, stay decent and go as a couple to see your parents (or in-laws) at their summer house.

Or…. Just bring a box of rosé and go hiking in a canoe while listening to swedish Bruce Springsteen.

"Gun" is a very legitimate Swedish name generally carried by old ladies.
