Swedish winter can be colorless but at the same time colorful. Many refer to it as the winter wonderland, others refer it as frozen paradise and it is likely they are picturing Småland.
People come to Småland for different reasons, whether it’s to create unforgettable new memories, or to escape from daily routine. Despite its name, Småland isn’t small. Småland isn’t only a place you go to, it’s where you can discover yourself.
We here at #myownSweden believe that there are many of us tired of being pressured by the external environment to do certain things and behave in a particular way. Especially when it comes to our holiday. Such as people telling us the “must go places” on our holiday, otherwise we would be “missing out” and our trip “wouldn’t count” if we didn’t go to the places they recommended.
There are 2 major holidays in April in Sweden, Easter and Valborg (Walpurgis Night). Easter is often a time for families to gather, like Thanksgiving. Valborg is a time to drink, dance and celebrate around a bonfire with family and friends.
