Every April 30 I celebrate Spring arriving. For me, there’s no point in greeting Spring in March, because that’s winter up here. So I choose to celebrate on the last of April instead. It’s also a family tradition to celebrate Valborgsmässoafton, as we Swedes call it. This year I joined my blot group and people from the Viking group in a May Pole celebration in Trondheim. Here are some pictures from that celebration:

Before the celebration, it had been raining off and on all day

We had good help though :)

We hope it’ll stay up even longer than last year’s, which stood for a couple of weeks.

I always offer the painted eggs from “Easter” on April 30

Njord got a beer at the end, as a thank you for the weather. It started snowing as we left.
