Tomorrow is the Finn's annual drinking
(and sadly for many: drowning)
festival Midsummer or Juhannus.
The party starts tonight with
bonfires known as "kokko".

It is also the official day to
celebrate the Finnish flag.

Here in SW19 we will celebrate in an time honored
fashion by doing bugger all. Maybe a little bonfire to
keep the evil spirits away, we'll see...oh and might
have a cider and go completely crazy!

EDIT 20.6.2009: Above some
of the kokko's from last night.
