midsummer magic

On Midsummer Eve we went to our neighbours' bonfire, (and had actually helped by providing all the wood and branches lying in our garden). Midsummer's kind of a big deal in Finland, though it's not one of my favourite holidays. There's still a lot of nice wee traditions about it that I love. I hadn't been to a good old bonfire in a few years, so that was nice! And my favourite part of Midsummer is all the old magic linked to it. I always pick seven different flowers and place them under my pillow. In your dream that night, you're supposed to see your future husband. Obviously I don't believe all this, but I love traditions. Especially this one.
