Alanders take their Midsummer celebration quite seriously.
There is the Midsummer Pole...
(Notice all of those little birch leaves tied onto the wires of the pole!)
...and little girls in dresses wearing floral crowns
...and singing and dancing
(even a foreigner can do it!)
...and let's not forget that even at midnight, it's still quite light out!
That's a lot to celebrate! Juhannusta!
