A National Holiday, a Moving Day and a Day for American Football
Monday, 6 June, 2016:
Today was . . .
Swedish Flag Day
This is a National Holiday in Sweden that some say is like our Fourth of July while other Swedes tell me that is a relatively new day in Swedish culture to celebrate a somewhat cloudy part of Swedish history.
Regardless, I liked it!
I moved into my newest apartment, hereto referred to as Icelandia III. It is a spacious, two bedroom affair that even has a balcony.
The FC Barcelona headboard makes the whole flat work!
As always, TACK SÅ MYCKET to Lotta Douhan and Aiki Parts for making my transition to a new home an easy one!
Meanwhile, back at the Flag Day celebration . . .
What says Sweden more than those two wonderful words?
I was told to head up the hill from the train station to the Upplands Väsby Hembygdsförening to see some fun doings.

Living this close to the practice/game field is an improvement.
