Swedish cities can be packed with traffic and people coming and going to the celebration through out the day on midsummer. Swedish families gather and celebrate with songs and dance as they have in the past traditions of Midsummers. The children dance and sing along to a frog song and some of the adults and parents even join in with the Swedish kids dancing. The Swedish Children dance to a funny frog song as they dance and almost seem to be hoping around while singing the song.

In Norway, Finland, and Denmark they have a celebration of their own. The Finish, Danish, and Norwegian summer parties are not like the Midsummer Eve celebrations in Sweden. Sweden seems to be the only country that really does celebrate Midsummer Eve in such ways. Midsummer Eve is a well known summer party special to Swedens.
Though the Norwegian, Danish and Finish celebrations are not the same traditions as Swedish Midsummer they still celebrate midsummer in very cool Nordic Traditions and Fun Scandinavian Ways. In Norway, Finland and Denmark the have bon fires and celebrate what is called Saint Hans or Sankt Hans. Dänen und Norweger Sankt Hans. Danish parties, finish parties and norwegian parties are a bit different but, they of course celebrate near this time since it is mostly a nordic event and celebration.

Midsummer's Eve 2010 The Swedish Crown Princess had her wedding party in Stockholm Sweden which was broadcasting live on Swedish Television. The Royal Family even had a Wedding Train set up to take people to the Swedish Princesses Wedding. Of course the Royal Family is born into royalty and the position to represent the Country as a public figure.
The Swedish king does not speak politics and deal with political matters as you would if you were the Prime Minister or President of a country. Even the most extreme right wing republicans in europe are not near as stupid as the republicans in the united states. People in European Countries do not know of such injustice and control as they have to live with in American life via usa.
