Every year on April 30th, Swedes celebrate the tradition of Valborg. This is a celebration of the welcoming of spring. This is also a day where all of the graduating high school students get to wear their graduation cap for the first time, which is an important and essential moment for a young Swede. Furthermore, Valborg is one of our Annual Events and we usually celebrate it at Mission Beach with our members and friends. Valborg is often celebrated with choir singing, gathering by a big bonfire and lots of joy and hope. Hope, as spring is arriving with better weather and the days getting longer and lighter. As we all still need to stay at home, we will have to celebrate Valborg virtually this year. But the key aspects of Valborg still remain: hope for lighter and better days. This is something we all need. Things will get better and the world will heal. Happy Valborg from all of us at the Swedish American Chamber of Commerce in San Diego.
