Midsummer magics with the Moomins

By following the Midsummer magic rituals of Snorkmaiden, your dreams come true and you’ll see the person you’re going to marry! Super exciting – are you ready?

To dreams come true

In Tove Jansson’s story ‘Moominsummer Madness’ (1954) Snorkmaiden and Fillyjonk collect nine kinds of wildflowers from meadows and put them under their pillows on Midsummer night to dreams come true. They are not allowed to say a word while picking them, nor afterward until morning which makes the whole event exciting and magical.

Snorkmaiden highlights that if you say a word you’ll never marry. Luckily laughing isn’t forbidden.

To see the person you’re going to marry

Snorkmaiden taught also another Midsummer magic: “First you must turn seven times around yourself, mumbling a little and stamping your feet. Then you go backwards to a well, and turn around, and look down in it. And then, down in the water, you’ll see the person you’re going to marry!”
