Finnish Independence Day 2017
Constance would like to wish all her Finnish friends and relations, and their friends and relations a Hyvää Itsenäisyyspäivää – a very Happy Birthday to Finland!!!
Two candles are lit and placed in a window on Finnish Independence Day, as a signal that people would find a safe haven in the house during times of oppression.
Happy 100 years of Independence, Finland! May many candles be lit tonight!
