Finnishness and Celebrations
As a girl who constantly is looking for excuses to throw parties (especially with a theme), for me an important part of being Finnish are our unique holidays and celebrations. From our never-ending student parties on Vappu, to dancing around the bonfire and swimming under the midnight sun on Juhannus, to the peaceful and tranquil days of December to celebrate our Independence Day and Christmas.
My Experiences of Finnishness
When thinking about Finnishness, three words come to my mind: Sauna, Silence, and Space.
