Long Holiday Weekend – Valborg/Walpurgis


As usual I don’t know much about or celebrate the Swedish holidays, other than gladly taking the days off they afford – especially now that I am paying attention (I started the year off with a bang – or should I say an alarm – by setting my company’s alarm off just after the new year – had no idea it was a holiday, so I have been careful to take note now).

This weekend we celebrate Valborg (“Walpurgis Night“). For me that means very little except maybe “hello, spring!” and time off. It’s welcome time off really… feel a need for recovery, kickstarting certain endeavors in earnest.

I am usually so dedicated to writing here every day, but if I go off track and don’t for a few days … this is why. Trying to adjust to new endeavors and routines.
