Countdown to midsummer

Our family has a tradition to gather to pur summer cottage to celebrate the midsummer every year. It has been going on for as long as I can remember. I only remember one midsummer when I haven't been there, and that was almost 40 years ago.

While it's still almost a month until it's again time to travel to our cottage the first step towards it has already been taken. The countdown to midsummer for many years bow has started when my mother asks in our group chat who's coming, what shall we eat and who brings what.

The question is rather moot. The answers are always pretty much the same. Sure there is occasionally somebody who can't come and sometimes we even add new items to our menu replacing some not-so-set-to-stone foods, but the core remains the same year after year.
