Hyvää Itsenäisyyspäivää !
Happy Anniversary !
Every year December 6 is the evening many, many (me incl.) Finns are watching TV. There is a direct televised sending from the Presidential Palace where about 1700-2000 invited guest are celebrating the Independence. The cream of society line up to shake hands with the President, wearing wonderful evening gowns which the people love watching from the comfort of their own sofas. The next day at work people are discussing who was wearing the most beautiful dress.
