Until 1983 National Day was celebrated as Flag Day since no big independence movement in the history of Sweden was marked by a particular day that would celebrate Sweden as a country. Thus, the day is not of great celebration and is mostly used as a chance to get out of town with family or friends. People everywhere around the country sing old Swedish songs and eat all things Swedish, including salmon and meatballs. However, this time,​ it is all outside!
