Two years ago, I was in Uppsala for Valborg, and now I’ll go to the Lund edition…what is Valborg? I’m not exactly sure why or how it all started, but I know some of the traditions: You start with a pancake and champagne breakfast, and the you head to the river (Uppsala) to watch the boats floating down the river. They’re all home made and usually don’t make it past the little waterfall. In Lund, we’ll head to stadsparken for some BBQ action. Magically, the weather always co-operates and it’s typically the first day of the year with everyone in shorts and summer dresses. In the afternoon, you’ll want to find somewhere to swim. In Lund, head to the beach. Otherwise, gather with your friends and enjoy all the chaos and activities. The evening is usually tame because people start the festivities so early. But there will usually be parties at the Nations? Be safe, and have fun!
