Celebrate the Midsummer Eve with style

The Midsummer Eve celebrations have been occurring since pre-Christian times. There is always a certain magic to Midsummer festivals, from the Midsummer Carnivals of Ireland to the revelries of the Finnish Midsummer, from the bonfires of French celebrations to the unique, mass festivities of the Swedish Midsummer, on what is probably the most important day in the Swedish calendar.

Top Five Midsummer Holiday Destinations

Midsummer Eve means many things to many cultures, with origins known to date from pre-Christian history. The connection with the summer solstice is clearly recognisable though, and many European cultures now associate the event with the birth of John the Baptist. Even the date changes from culture to culture, but always around the 21st and 24th June, around the longest day of the year, and there is always a magical atmosphere if joy, excitement and optimism.
