Winter is over. The trees are green again and we are all preparing for summer. For students, it’s just a few weeks before the spring term ends. With the beautiful weather, spring is a time for so many beautiful events.  One of such events is Valborg. Celebrated on the last day of April, it is a festival where massive bonfires are lit in honour of an 8th-century German abbess, St. Walpurga, or Valborg in Swedish.

Perfect weather for hanging out with friends

Unfortunately, as a result of a very high fire risk, this year the County Administrative Board  declared a fire ban. However, students were unperturbed by the sad news as they thronged Trädgådstorget in their numbers to celebrate the day with a lot of singing and dancing. Of course on such occasions where many students gather and there is music, there is also as much beer as you imagine.
