Glad Midsommar! The Swedish-American community of Lindsborg, Kansas, celebrates Midsummer by wearing traditional Swedish folk costumes and dancing around the town's maypole. Traditionally a pagan summer solstice and fertility holiday throughout northern Europe, Midsummer today is a continued celebration of long days and the start of summer.

@kyle_why04

@valerieheinrichs the Bible is neither reality or truth...so im not the one mixing anything up. Enjoy your fable and your hate filled existence.

@valerieheinrichs

@kyle_why04 clearly you have reality/Truth and fiction mixed up...sorry to hear that. :(

@praisethe_harrison

@argentoandbava I'm Scandinavian and Trump is a moron.

@kyle_why04

@valerieheinrichs no....I don’t read fiction.

@valerieheinrichs

@kyle_why04 Have you read Genesis??? It's a good place to start...at The Beginning!

@kyle_why04

If you think the earth started with Genesis you’ve got bigger problems...

@valerieheinrichs

@kyle_why04 Do you read the Bible? It's got history alright... and science, well, it confirms what has been from the Beginning! Genesis 1:1!

@elenalato

Wonderful ❀️✨

@shilluminatus

@pennylanederson It is necessary, it’s pretending that is doesn’t exist is why the problem keeps growing.

@saldog5

@dana_hadley maybe we should go next summer...instead of hosting?
