Note: In Sweden many holidays have their main celebrations not on the actual day, but on the Eve of the holiday. Some of these celebration Eve's include Christmas Eve, Midsummer Eve, New Year's Eve and Walpurgis Eve.
Although the celebration Eve's are significant to the Swedes, they're not official holidays, but rather half-days. Fortunately for most citizens, employers widely consider these special days as full holidays off from work.
