Dumptruck Graduations

Remember high school graduation? The feeling of 13 years of school winding down and college just on the horizon? The fun of celebrating with your friends...piling into the back of a dumptruck with 30 of your closest friends and riding around town? neither.

Yesterday was graduation day for high schools in Sweden. And the tradition, for some odd reason, is that students' parents rent dump trucks and tractors and people pile into the back of it. This is hands down one of the funniest phenomenons of Sweden I've witnessed so far. They load up speakers and blast music and everyone just stands in the back of these trucks and sing and yell. And the poor truck drivers drive them around town ALL DAY! I cracked up each time one drove by...which was a lot. So congrats class of 2010, YOUUU DID IT! Maybe next year go for a cookout instead??
