Hej (Hello)! I am Swedish Barbie doll and I want to welcome you to Sweden, a beautiful land filled with flowers, trees, and clear flowing water. I am wearing a traditional folk costume often worn for Midsummer in Lapland, the northernmost part of Sweden, just above the Arctic Circle. My colorful dress, with attached red apron and criss-cross flock vest, is just right for the customary dancing that takes place around the maypole, (a large wooden pole we decorate with green leaves, flowers and ribbons. ) We always have fun dancing and playing games around the maypole. I hope you will come join me in Sweden real soon. Until then, Hejda (Goodbye)!
