Table set for a Halloween meal

Sweden has slowly adopted the Halloween tradition. Probably because of the candy. But people still get discombobulated when it falls on a weekday. What to do? Can we take the kids out on Saturday instead? Or maybe Friday? But surely you can’t have a holiday in the middle of the week? Even a Sunday feels uncomfortable.

The huge celebration of Midsummer used to follow the calendar, but is now fixed to fall on a Friday & Saturday – Midsummer eve on Friday and Midsummer Day on Saturday, kind of like Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

Looking forward to write a post here, when Sweden has put some order into this unruly custom and forced Halloween to fall on a Saturday. Or, maybe a Friday.
