notes from the north: Majbål

On the first of May, Swedes celebrate Valborg – the coming of spring – by starting bright and early with champagne for breakfast. As the festivities commence, things just get sillier, but at dusk the Majbål brings a romantic, and rather dramatic, close to the day’s folly.
ours consisted of last year’s Christmas trees which emitted the rich scent of burning pine. A good way to start the season.
