Re: Midsommar , Aargau, Swedish things ?

Ha.. a big topic of conversation for me this past weekend.

I've been invited down the 'midsummer' festival in Aarau (curtailed by Covid but still some events are happening) in a few weeks.

Then I saw some pics of previous years and I couldn't believe how similar it is to the Swedish equivalent.. in the film Midsommer.

And then I realised that I was a 'foreigner' being asked to join in with the local pagans, dressed in white with flower garlands.

"Ha, ha... ", I said nervously, "you're not going to slaughter me in some horrific ritual are you ?"

I didn't like the smiling, noncommital responses.
