It's Monday today, but not an ordinary one. Today is our national day, but if you excuse me, that isn't the special thing about this day. When I was younger we only called this day the Swedish Flag's Day and that is what I still feel would be the right name. I am proud of my flag and my country, but there haven't been any war for freedom here or anything like that. One good thing with this day is that "we" welcome formally people who have got their Swedish citizenship during the year. But the most of us just have this day as a day of
and hopefully enjoy a wonderful weather and spend the time in the garden or visiting friends. I think that our National day never will be as big as the weekend in June when we celebrate Midsummer. But that's another story (post!).
