Hyvää itsenäisyyspäivää ! Happy Finnish Independence Day

Today is the 96th anniversary of Finland becoming an independent nation. We celebrate freedom and great Finnish traditions such as bravely running through blizzards and snowdrifts to reach a safe house where we can eat a delicious bowl of poronkäristys. That's reindeer stew, so don't expect any deliveries of Christmas presents.

You could slide over the ice at our house to have a little venison chilli. Heh-heh!
It's almost the same thing....

Hey PPP!

Poronkäristys works always. Hope äiti have not made it from Petteri Punakuono. Then we really have a problem as you think. If Joulupukki has not Petteri, we not gonna get any presents. Other reideers we can eat.
