I celebrated my first ever Nordic Mid-Sommar Party this afternoon organised by the Nordic YSSP delegates and a few assorted extras.
The party included herring, meatballs, schnapps and a mini traditional pole decorated in flags and flowers. Each person had to bring a flower to decorate the poll.
There were drinking songs, dancing around the pole and apparently a strange occurrence at a mid-sommar party: sunshine :) The Nordic countries normally have rain, very different from a Cape Town mid-summer with blistering heat. In true South African spirit I appropriated Elisabeth's head gear for the party.
