Known as Midsommar in Sweden, this celebration involves making crowns of flowers and dancing around a pole (that part is less weird than it sounds).

5. Or take a step further and dress up for Golowan, a traditional Cornish Midsummer celebration

Like Midsommar, Golowan celebrations involve bonfires and wreaths of flowers, but mixed with scary skull disguises and children dressed as pirates. Fun!

16. Make your way to Providence, Rhode Island for one of the stunning lightings of the WaterFire installation.
