Hyvää uutta vuotta and Happy Birthday!

January 1, 2008
Hyvää uutta vuotta! Or Happy New Year in a more familiar language! New Year’s celebrations were low key in this household, but we did take the time to enjoy the fireworks that other people were setting off around our house. For the most part celebrations around the country appeared to have passed off without any serious incidents. The norm at this time of the year is eye injuries and burnt buildings because of stray fireworks…
I was out for a walk yesterday near my house and was pleased to find out that the celebrations for Espoo’s 550th birthday started yesterday. Find out more at Happy Birthday Espoo! (Incidentally Espoo is older than the city of Helsinki. Espoo was founded in 1458 and Helsinki in 1550 (according to Lonely Planet Finland)).
Cheers to all and all the best in 2008.
