Candles in the window

Tomorrow is Finnish Independence Day. On this day Finns celebrate their independence from Russia in 1906 and the birth of Finland as a sovereign nation.

Candles for Independence Day

I hope you already got everything needed to celebrate one of the most important Finnish holidays. One of the most important items are the two blue and white candles. They are put into the window at night. In times of war those candles invited friendly troops into the house for food and shelter. 

You should get the candles and everything else you need today since basically everything will be closed tomorrow.

Enjoy the day off tomorrow and have a nice Itsenäisyyspäivä!
