According to my “earth” calendar, today is Midsummer Party day in Denmark. Many northern European countries celebrate Midsummer by building bonfires and having lots of fun. It’s origins go waaay back.
Recently, I read how Denmark has been deemed the happiest country in the world. I remember being very intrigued by this and wondered how this could even be calculated. I read that because of their type of economy and welfare program, they have a good level of income equality. Could this be the reason they are so happy?
So, today, when I checked my calendar and saw that Denmark will be holding these celebrations, I couldn’t help but picture all the happy people laughing and clapping and hopping around the fire. It was a strange vision for sure! haha!
