Note that the eve of a holiday is as important or more so than the holiday itself. Most Swedes have the day off, including civil servants, banks, public transport workers, hospitals, shops and media workers. Others have at least a half day. This applies especially to Midsummer's Eve, All Saints Day Eve and Christmas Eve. The eve of May Day is sometimes called Valborg Eve.

Most Swedes take their vacation in July.
