Blogue d'un québécois expatrié en Angleterre. Comme toute forme d'autobiographie est constituée d'une large part de fiction, j'ai décidé de nommer le blogue Vraie Fiction.

I have learned rencently, on one of the internet forums I sometimes go to that we are or we are near Midsummer, which is more or less the equivalent of the Summer's solstice. Which means today. Or tonight. The longest day of the year. In Sweden, Midsummer's Day is celebrated on the 24th of June, but from what I understand around Scandinavia it is more or less from June 21st until the the 24th. It is celebrated with old rituals which roots are deep in Paganism. To commemorate Midsummer and in a way to kick start the season I thought I would upload a picture of the mystery play I saw in Visby, during the medieval festival there. A medieval mystery play, the longest day of the year, summer in full bloom, it is a fitting image.
