6th of December – Finland’s Independence Day


Hello Dear Friends! Today is a special day because Finland, my home country celebrates it’s independence! Happy Anniversary Finland! Our Christmas Calendar has today of course something in Blue and White …
day 6

I made The North Star to lead you to my north home country …

It has blue lakes, blue berries, blue sky, blue shadows and  white nights, white clouds, white snow.

Behind it’s only water – lakes and sea! Did you know that Finland has more than 50 000 lakes?! If you look the map, it’s only blue and green!

North Star leads us also to Finnish Moomins and our Christmas Calendar …

Oups! Take care if you skate on the lake! But don’t worry – Moomin is helping!

If you like to visit and see Finland, here are few links:
