Sweden's National Day

Is no one going to talk about it or what, because, like, it is pretty much Sweden's birthday!

I've never been there, but I already like the country and its language :D Grattis Sverige!

What's the proper greeting for Sweden's National Day, anyways? Grattis på dagen?

Thank you. :) Swedes have a complicated relationship with national pride, and the national day isn't quite the festive event that you'd see in Norway or the US. Nonetheless, it is celebrated in various manners. :)

I suspected as much, when my Tumblr was flooded with Norwegian flags on 17 May and today was relatively calm. :-P

I think '(ha en) trevlig nationaldag' is better Glad Påsk - happy easter God Jul - merry christmas (ha en) skön sommar - (have a) nice summer
