You know you live in Sweden
When you’re not totally surprised to see Viking warriors
Camped outside a tent.
Viking heritage is celebrated around the country
In different events.
This two-day festival took place near my home
And the guest of honour was this beautiful
100-year-old replica of a Viking boat.
Families often dress up
And attend these Viking festivals
Using clothes and equipment that reflect how life was back then —
Even sleeping out
In these comfy-looking tents.
Talk about making history come alive!
