The 30th of April is an important date in Sweden and Finland where we celebrate Valborg or the arrival of Spring. As a tradition, we do a bonfire, where we burn all different types of garden debris and sing a special song. There is as always, some food and drinking on the menu. For many years the Swedish church in Mallorca has arranged a lovely evening with a typical Valborg bonfire night, that included singing from the church choirs, food, and drinks. It has been very popular.
