Swedish Midsummer celebration at IKEA Bangna

To celebrate the Swedish Midsummer, IKEA Bangna offered a free flower headband workshop to participating guests at G Floor from 10am to 7pm on Saturday 22 June.

Many Thais participated in the workshop where they learned to make wreaths of ‘krans’ and wore them on their heads. They enjoyed themselves while learning about the Swedish Midsummer celebration tradition there.

Midsummer is the celebration of the summer solstice and arguably Sweden’s best loved holiday. The celebration, which takes place when the weather is at its finest in Sweden, is an ancient practice that has many rituals closely associated with the hope for a good harvest in autumn. Swedes dance, sing and often begin Midsummer Eve by picking flowers to make wreaths. Then they wear these wreaths of krans on their heads during Midsummer day.
