Magic at midsummer night in Reykjavík

According to Morgunblaðið there was magic in the air at the midsummer night festival in Laugardalur in central Reykjavík, held late last night. Eight hundred people assembled in the family park close to the open door swimming pool at Laugardalur. The pool was open and admissions were free.

According to Icelandic folklore, cows gain voices and seals take off their fur at midsummer night. At midsummer night, the dew is said to be particularly wholesome, and stones are imbued with magical powers.
