Happy May!

It's May already! I'm happy about it but also a tad confused... How did that happen? Seemed awfully fast... No complaints though, very exciting. Looks like the weather is getting warmer and we're at +20 degrees again tomorrow.

Today is also Vappu. If you're not sure what I'm talking about, it's a huge celebration in Finland (well, elsewhere too, but I can only write about Finland). It's a party mainly for students, but most people are out celebrating. Downtown Helsinki will be packed with people and everyone is in a good mood. Vappu celebrations include champagne, balloons and picnics. It even seems like the weather is on board this year (it's an on going joke that it's always cold, and honestly, it usually is. Freezing is a part of vappu).

Iloista Vappua! Happy first of May everyone!


  1. Nope, not cold this year. Just nice and sunny. We had an 8 hour picnic.

    1. That sounds amazing! I'm happy to hear that, for once, the weather was good on vappu!
