"Midsummer celebrations" Norway Local Custom Tip by jonkb

Norway Local Customs: 142 reviews and 125 photos

Although not as huge as the midsummer celebration in Sweden, Norway (and Denmark) celebrate the logest day of the year and the shortest night. A big fire is lit, upon which a whitch is thrown (not a live one: a doll). It's being celebrated less and less, but you should be able to find out where to go. The date is always on June 23rd.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
