One of Sweden’s most important holidays, Midsummer, took place this weekend. With the out of the ordinary (for most Americans, at least) celebrations across the U.S., it must have been hard to miss. In Los Angeles, The Swedish American Chamber of Commerce hosted their annual midsummer event, this time at a rooftop in Santa Monica. Over 500 people RSVPed and about 350 showed up.
