06-06: National Day / Día nacional

Well, I know 6th of June was a week ago, but I was unable to publish that day because I don't have internet connection in my room, so I waited until today.
Anyway, 6th of June is Swedish National Day. I went to check out how they celebrated it, and here you have some pictures of it. Everybody had flags in their houses, there were some concerts... It was quite interesting, though it wasn't a huge thing (at least here in Karlstad). By the way, according to wikipedia, this day was selected as the national day "in honour of the election of King Gustav Vasa in 1523, as this was considered the foundation of modern Sweden".

Bueno, sé que el 6 de junio fue la semana pasada, pero no pude publicar ese día porque no tengo internet en la habitación, así que esperé hasta hoy.
La cosa es que el 6 de junio es el día nacional de Suecia. Fui a ver cómo lo celebraban y aquí os pongo algunas fotos de ello. Todo el mundo tenía banderas en sus casas, hubo conciertos... Estuvo interesante, aunque no fue gran gran cosa (al menos aquí en Karlstad). Por cierto, según wikipedia, el 6 de junio es el día nacional de Suecia "por ser el dia en el cual Gustavo Vasa fue elegido rey de Suecia [en 1523]."
