.fi: Sausages, sauna, cottages and naked young ladies

Just a quick post with a quote to trick my readers into reading some article regarding midsummer celebrations in Finland:

By tradition, Midsummer is a magical time of year, especially for young maidens in search of both suitors and fertility […]

To attract us shallow males, many of the spells involve nudity. For example, if one wants to determine their future bridegroom, they should run naked around a triangular field three times. […] Really, who can say ‘no’ to a naked woman in a field?

I will be heading to a summer cottage in the countryside in a couple of hours… For the moment it is looking promising. At a bare minimum for sure we are getting a nice sauna time in a cottage quite near to a lake, will be eating grilled sausages, trying to fish someting from the lake in row boats and enjoying free time with friends. Naked ladies in rye fields? Dunno… let’s see how the weekend develops 😀
