Celebrating Sankt Hans Aften (Mid Summer's Eve!)
It's June 23rd! And it's a very special day here in Denmark! Today is the day that Danes celebrate Midsummer's Eve—the shortest night of the year. It's referred to as St. John's Eve or Sankt Hans Aften. Danes will be celebrating all around Denmark tonight (and so will I!) and in particular, Copenhagen will be a very fun place to be as there will be big bonfires around the city. Midsummer is always a super special time to me and in my opinion, the perfect time to celebrate and embrace all things summer: picnics, strawberries, friends, late nights, bike rides, picking flowers and wearing light airy dresses. I can't wait to celebrate tonight with most of those things mentioned. I took this sweet little picture yesterday when I was riding my bike home from a summer picnic in Kongens Have, also known as the King's Garden. I always pass this little park on my way home from Nørreboro and yesterday, the light was golden and I saw a sweet little cherry tree loaded with the rainier variety. So I pulled over and foraged some fallen cherries, a sweet rose, a feather and some sweet other little things that made my heart skip a beat. I'm wishing you all a beautiful midsummer to all of you wonderful babes. I hope you get to celebrate with all things sweet and joyful.
