Finland 100 years

6 12 2017

Finland celebrates its 100 years of independence on the 6th of December 2017. Many countries, cities, private and public organizations around the world honor it by illuminating monuments and sights.

Most impressive seemed to be Colosseum, which was illuminated already on the 5th of December.

From Finland one of the best light arts and world’s biggest one by Kari Kola comes from Lappland.

Below you can find a link to list of spots which are lightened up in blue and white. New sights are published all the time.

100 years independency deserves vintage champagne, Palmes d’Or 2004 from Nicolas Feuillatte. Non alcoholic sparkling choice is Kuohuva Kuusenkerkkä from Finnish producer Korpihilla.


Happy Indepence Day!

We celebrated last night with a group of Finns. Songs were sung, Finnish food was eaten and a good time was held by all.
