Two Candles

Two Candles

Tansy and Constance are happy to help her eat them!  Two candles in the window are lit on Finnish Independence Day, a signal that people would find a safe haven in the house during times of oppression.

Happy 98 years of Independence, Finland! May many candles be lit tonight!

On Finnish Independence Day 2011 Constance and Tansy became involved in a great Reindeer Saga.  Starting from the bottom, the entire story can be seen by following this link

A very nice on-line Finnish Advent Calendar can be found here

  1. Cardamom cookies! Yum.

    It was fun to look at the reindeer saga again! I found there was an “older posts” button I had to press at the bottom of the list from your link to get all the way to the bottom.

  2. Lovely, thank you for the reminder about the Great Reindeer saga. What fun. I have read quite a bit about Finland…rather a fascinating history they have.
