MajblommanSoon you will begin to see children selling little flowers around town. This is a Swedish culture tradition which began in Göteborg 1907 with the goal of helping those afflicted with tuberculosis. Today the proceeds go toward combating the effects of childhood poverty. Donations are made to schools and organizations as well as directly to individual children in need.

So celebrate spring and show your support by purchasing a Mayflower and fastening it to your coat or jacket!
