Modified Midsummer @ D´Box on SSS2 Day...

Have you heard how Swedes celebrates Midsummer?

Well, to those who are not keen of the European Midsummer, it was said that this day, is one of the most celebrated day specially in Scandinavia, Latvia and Estonia, apart from Christmas day. Press the link, pls? Mid-summer

Usually, one of my cousin and her family, host this celebration every summer, then gather our families and dear friends. This time, it was hosted by D´Nics at D´Box due to the reason that my cousin is in The Philippines, enjoying their summer vacation.

So, here's from last Mid-summer hosted by our municipality

  18. What a wonderful celebration you all had! The Maypole is very pretty and the food looks so good! Everyone looks like they're having a splendid time. Enjoy your Summer and have a lovely day.


  19. I did not know about the Mid -Summer holiday but it sounds like a very nice day to spend time having lots of fun. Your family certainly looks like they are having a happy time. Thank you very much for participating in my party. I am not doing the party any longer because it takes a lot of my time. I need some extra time to do some other things. I will continue to do Cozy Home Scenes just not the party. Please continue to visit me just as usual and I will stop by your blog also. -----------

  20. I can remember creating a Maypole when I was in elementary school!!! Wow...that really brings back memories! I think I remember a scene in the 1994 version of "Little Women" where they were dancing around a Maypole? I'll have to watch that again to see. This is so cool! I clicked over to the history of Midsummer, and it is really interesting. I'm relieved that you guys didn't build a massive bonfire in your back yard!!! The fire from the grill was enough and represented the bonfire! :-) I see that you had a lot of the traditional foods, too, like the strawberries. Wow...very cool, Chie! You were having a GREAT time...I can tell!!! :-) It still looks as though it's a little cool because you are wearing a jacket in some of the photos. I will gladly trade you! We will reach 100 degrees this week here! :-(

  21. Maybpoles are sooo much fun. We don't see them here in the southwest at all. I'm so glad you brought back so many memories. It looks like you were having a wonderful time. thanks for dropping in.. xo marlis
