Today is Independence day...
    #2163589 - 12/06/03 07:50 AM (14 years, 6 months ago)

for Finland. so to all the finns on this board (though i only really know of 2) hyv?? itsen?isyysp?iv?...though i'm not sure if people tell each other that or not.

i can personally say i can't imagine an independence day on such a cold winter day since i'm used to the 4th of july celebrations in the US...but then again this is Finland and your independence was won after the Freedom War in winter. :smile: :grin:

for all those who aren't familiar with the Finn's particular independence day celebrations...from what i hear people sit at home turn on their TVs and watch the presidential independence day party held at the president's palace. it's where the rich of Finland go and mingle...which i think it's a load of crock but oh well whatever floats the Finns boat :tongue:
