#340 happy 93rd birthday finland!

The Finnish Independence Day, on December 6th, is a very solemn, serious celebration. The tradition is to put two blue and white candles at all your windows, and light them from 6 to 8 pm. It’s nice to go for a walk then, to see all these candles flickering in the dark.
