The Post Quiz: Summer Holiday Fun

Scuba diving - an alternative holiday?

'In the summertime, when the weather is hot.' Or not. (Sigh.) Take your mind off unseasonable rainstorms (and snowstorms – sorry, upper state New York ) and answer the questions from the Edited Guide. What do you do for fun around the world?

  1. How do Norwegians make Pentecost special?
  2. What dance, familiar to Nobel Prize Winners, is performed at Swedish midsummer maypole ceremonies?
  3. What do people in the Peak District of the UK do to their wells in the summer?
  4. What kinds of performances fill the streets of Edmonton, Alberta, during the summer months?
  5. What objet d'art in Collinsville, Illinois celebrates its birthday in style every summer?
  6. If you went to a Kirmes in Düsseldorf, what would you find?
  7. Why are people looking up in the sky in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, every July?
  8. What can you see from the open-top bus in Cleethorpes, UK?
  9. Where do you want to be to see the sun rise over the Heel Stone on Midsummer's Day?
  10. At what appropriate patriotic venue in the US can children who visit take sculpting lessons?
