Todays celebration of swedens National Day in Stockholm now on SVTPLAY

Thought someone might find it interesting. Watch and listen to some swedish artists and watch our king watch it from front row. No subtitles unfortunatly!

Can be seen all over the world

Apparently the royals were in Skåne for the speech earlier today, prior to the Stockholm festivities. My brother called me yesterday to tell me he was going to play improv jazz for the king while a French tightroper walked over a ravine without a safety net.

Usually in such expressions, "glad" is used. Thus, it's "glad nationaldag!". :)

Worth mentioning perhaps that we don't have much of a tradition celebrating this in Sweden, certainly not in the same way as the 4th of July is celebrated in the US or 17th of May is in Norway.

It's only been a proper holiday since 2005 and I personally wouldn't even have noticed if a co-worker hadn't reminded me not to come in to work this Monday. :)
