Celebration with the Royal Family
Every year, the King and Queen of Sweden take part in a ceremony at Skansen, Stockholm’s open-air museum, where the yellow and blue Swedish flag is run up the mast, and children in traditional peasant costume present the royal couple with bouquets of summer flowers.A lot of people is gathering to Skansen for this event.
These days, special ceremonies welcoming new Swedish citizens are held around the country on National Day.
The last time people in general took an active interest in Sweden as a nation-state was at the turn of the century, around 1900, when national-romantic winds were blowing through the country and folklore societies and local history museums were established. It was then that 6 June first became a day of celebration.
Public holiday for the first time in 2005
In 2004, the Swedish parliament voted to make it a public holiday, which made people to become more interested in celebrating it. The final decision took decades to reach ? various proposals had been discussed under a succession of governments.
So today we all here at AG International Property Group wish Swedes all over The World a Happy National Day.
