Bonfire, bevvies and…choirs? Stockholmers explain Valborg

With the city’s favourite Spring ritual coming up in just a couple of days – we took to the streets to find out from the horse’s mouth just what this Valborg malarkey is all about!

As it turns out – everyone is in agreement that there SHOULD be a fire (no Valborg without it, right?) and that people DO tend to get a teensy-weensy bit in their cups – but not a single person would sing us the traditional Valborg songs (Glad såsom fågeln and Vintern Rasat, ed’s. note) so to get those you’re going to have to go out and explore for yourself! Anyway, consider yourself prepared!
