Hauskaa Juhannusta kaikille!

I wouldn’t be a proper Finnish exile if I didn’t wish everyone a nice midsummer … so glad midsommar till alla!

Update: The sad side of Juhannus is that each year someone dies in boating/alcohol/other accidents. This Juhannus eleven people died, seven of those in boating accidents, the rest in other accidents including one young drunk girl who was killed when she stepped in front of a fire engine.
There were also a number of other ‘normal’ problems this year, camp and/or bonfires leading to forest fires, drink driving & other drink related problems and road accidents due to the high volume of traffic over the weekend.

  1. Are you telling us that Finnish people use to get drunk or irresponsible in June only?

  2. Of course! :) )
