Förra veckan var det Valborgsmäss. I Katrineholm sker firandet i Djulösjön. Här paddlar de ut för att tända brasan 
Last week was the Celebration of sprin where I live. We celebrate it in Djulö with fire and firework. The shot above shows canoes taking the fire to the bonfire



Brasan ligger vackert i Djulösjön. - The bonfire is beutifully placed in the lake


Kvällen slutar som sig bör med fyrverkeri, och de hade verkligen slagit på stort den här gången. 
The celebration ends with fireworks. And this year it was biggger then usual. Nice!
