In Sweden we celebrate midsummer by dressing up a pole with flowers. Then we jump like frogs around it while singing we are small frogs....

We did something similar for May day. We held streamers and flowers and danced around the May pole.No froggies though !

In the USA Midwest, there are few major cities, the space of the cities can be vast. Some cities are considered the murder capital of the US, but it is in relation to number of incidents per capita. There are a lot of farm land, corn, wheat, beans, and fruit are the major products. There are several words for soft drink in the midwest. You will hear soda, pop, pepsi (can mean anything that is a soda) We fry anything and it tastes good. :rofl:

There are different names for soft drinks every place you go in the US. We call it Tonic in the north east but it was Pop when I visited my grandparents in North Dakota where tonic would have got me medicine or a hair product! When I went to Georgia for a business trip I was asked would I like a Coke, an Orange Coke, an Diet Coke Coke, a rootbeer Coke...so I guess everything there is a a Coke. In Scotland a soda is a Juice just to confuse me some more.

That's what my family in Los Angeles has always done on New Years, just as it hits midnight. Well, going outside, banging pots and pans, and celebrating, anyway. I think our neighbors always hated us :blush:

In Texas when its ones birthday money is pinned to you clothes all day so at work, on the street, in a store,or by friends you have this long trail of bills
,
$1, 5 10, 20 50 depending on your circle of ppl it becomes a lot, while walking on the street most will remove the bills leaving say $3 and still

strangers will run up and pin another bill, so when you see someone with bills pinned on its their birthday pin one on too. I guess not in all states they

do or can do this .
