Hyvää Itsenäisyyspäivä

 Have a nice and Happy Independence Day! Like Finnish do, you can enjoy by watching the Castle Ball or Linnanjuhat. Light some blue candles and enjoy your time with family or friends.  
Happy Independence day Finland!

Finland Celebrates their independence on December 6th. the date when they got their independence form the Russian Republic. The declaration of independence was written on 4.12.1917 and then accepted by government at 6.12.1917 with 100 to 88 votes. 

On January 1918 Finland got accepted their independence by most of the European countries, first ones being Sweden and France at 4th of January and Germany at 6th, Great Britain and United States didn’t accept the independence before the WWI had ended, more than a year later.

The date of December 6
th has only been celebrated since 1919, when at first it was only a holiday for offices, schools and jury; then in 1929 it became a general holiday like we know it today. The biggest celebration happens at the Presidential Castle commonly known as Linnanjuhlat where more than 2000 Finnish celebrities and important people are invited to have dinner with the President. The party is every year broadcasted by Finnish Television YLE and most of Finns like to watch it at home.

We are already getting ready with glögi and food to watch the show on TV and you? 
Happy Holidays!
