Finnish people have their very unique way of showing their pride of being Finnish. Unlike other countries we don’t wear Finland flags colors in our clothes etc. We have a more settle way of showing our pride. Here are few things that we are proud of and are happy to show others when talking about Finland.
Oh how much we love the sauna. It’s a place were one can relax on your own or with family and friends and place to catch up on things with them. It is also a place were you are completely naked and present yourself the way you are.
Fazer is a brand Finnish people seem to be proud of even though we don’t talk about it. Frazer is not originally from Finland but it has made it’s way to our hearts. Salmiakki is also popular on top of chocolates and other sweets. We are brought up to like this candy and it’s always fun to see foreigners trying it.
We might not have sun all the time but our nature finds a way to keep our spirit up even though its dark most of the year. Most of Finland is covered with forest and lakes. Population is also spread quite a bit so there is always quiet place when one can relax.
-Lack of small talk (good in a way that when you meet Finnish people they show their politeness by giving you space and getting to know you in time.)
