Hi Terry, it is so fun to hear that you are promoting this core feature of Finnishness in Canada! 🙂My grandparents settled in Bruce Crossing, MI on the UP. Even though we’ve scattered to WI and MN, those UP roots run deep and periodically pull us back…proud of my Finnish heritage.By no means is this habit to insult or depreciate the person who gave the compliment, rather just shows that the receiver is modest.Originating in the 1950s, St. Urho’s Day (March 16th) was created as a tongue-in-cheek counterpart to St. Patrick’s Day. According to legend, the fictional St. Urho (whose name was influenced by Finland’s president at the time Urho Kekkonen) drove the grasshoppers out of ancient Finland, saving the grape crops. The holiday has caught on in many Finnish-American communities, and there are even statues commemorating the brave St. Urho.. Played by Cory Monteith prior to his death, Finn Hudson was a prominent character on Glee. Other up-and-comers in the same family: Finlay and Finley, Finian and Finnian..
Finns seldom make speeches during a meal, but they do so on formal occasions. In such cases, the speeches are made between courses. During the meal, the host may toast individual guests, or guests may toast each other, by raising their glasses and making eye contact. Once the toast is drunk, eye contact should be made again when lowering the glass to the table. In addition to his university positions, Finn Tarp has held senior posts and advisory positions within government and with donor organizations, and he is member of a large number of international committees and advisory bodies. They include the European Union Development Network (EUDN).. When you feed your street cats at three in the morning so you won’t run into any humans. When you stare at a point on the sidewalk about ten feet in front of you so you won’t see anyone you know. When you pretend not to see when someone offers you their seat on a bus. When you hope to God the seat next to you on the plane is empty. When you actually have to speak to someone – like at the pharmacy or in a shoe store. When you have to make a phone call. When you have to go into a store you’ve never been in before. When you stop to pet a dog and pretend there’s not a human on the other end of the leash.Finns rarely enter into conversation with strangers, unless a particularly strong impulse prompts it. As foreigners often note, Finns are curiously silent in the metro, the bus or the tram. In lifts, they suffer from the same mute embarrassment as everyone else in the world. However, a visitor clutching a map will have no trouble in getting advice on a street corner or in any other public place, since the hospitality of Finns easily overrides their customary reserve.

[10 Questions With, Fergal Devitt] Educated Finnish speakers, particularly those working in the public sector, speak Swedish to some degree whilst almost all Swedish-speaking Finns speak Finnish too. Only in some coastal areas and in the autonomous province of the Åland Islands is Swedish the dominant language, indeed in Åland it is the only official language. The status of Swedish as the joint official language of mainland Finland can be seen in the bilingual names of public institutions and in street signs, the latter case depending on the percentage of minority language speakers resident in a given municipality, and in the Swedish-language programmes on radio and TV. Swedish-speaking Finns have a distinctive culture, and their social mores are influenced by Scandinavian traditions moreso than amongst the Finnish-speaking majority.
Christmas, and Christmas Eve in particular, is very much a family festival in Finland, usually spent at home or with relatives. Customs include lighting candles by the graves of deceased family members. Finns wish each other ‘Merry Christmas’, but equally often they say ‘Peaceful Christmas’. Christmas Day is generally a quiet day and Christmastide social life does not restart until Boxing Day. Finns love their forests and spending time in nature any time of the year. I've learned during my time in Finland that there is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothes. Finns don't waste time and have made sure that every season is accentuated with a special outdoor activity that always keeps you.. Finnish is a member of the Finnic group of the Uralic family of languages. The Finnic group also includes Estonian and a few minority languages spoken around the Baltic Sea. Finnish is spoken by about five million people, most of whom reside in Finland John Koskinen, Commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service – the highest non-elected office in the United States.My paternal grandparents were from Finland, arriving here around 1906. They met somewhere in the Midwest, lived in Arizona, and ultimately settled in Northern California. Fort Bragg had a Finnish settlement where they lived for a while. There’s a Finnish cultural heritage center in Sonoma County. We live in the western part of Berkeley where there are two Finnish Halls. Finnish boat builders built the house we live in.

Salolampi is a Finnish Language Immersion Camp established by tenacious and big-dreaming Finnish-Americans in 1978 in Northern Minnesota and since 1992, has resided in Bemidji, MN. Every year hundreds of participants come from around the world to take part in Finnish language and culture immersion programming. Finnish food is served at every meal and learning is done through singing, crafts, sports, and fun. Even many of the buildings (including one of two saunas) were imported from Finland! More information here: http://www.concordialanguagevillages.org/youth-languages/finnish-language-villageMy Gramma was Finn/Swede from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. She was born in Toivola near Misery Bay. I heard her speak Finnish from birth. I still vaguely remember my Great-Gramma, who we called Aiti. She spoke little to no English. I also remember my Great-Great Aunt who would make the best coffee cakes and braided breads! I hear someone speak Finnish and it brings back so many great memories.
Live in southwest Washington (state) in a small town named Woodland. Family on my mother’s side moved here from Finland in 1903. Numerous Finns lived in the area and surrounding towns. Had a Finn Hall (no longer there, many roads named after Finnish families including mine (Niemi), and almost everyone had a sauna on their place. I grew up in the log house my grandfather built. Lots of Finns still in area but not together like in the past.Moikka Varpu, I am third-generation born in USA and 57% Finnish. My non-Finn mother always gives me a hard time for being quiet and using only 1 or 2 words when answering a question – I say it’s just my Finnish blood! I happened to see this blog post shared by “Very Finnish Problems” on Facebook and am now liked/following your page there! Hyvää päivää!The migration from Finland to America was very popular from 1880’ies until 1920’ies. All together 8 of my granduncles, my grandfather’s (Viirret) and grandmothers (Rantala) brothers went there during 1890’ies to 1910’ies. Some granaunts also. Mostly they went to California, but some also to Minnesota. Some lived their later lives at Washington state. I suppose one my granduncles was a taxi driver or a chaffeur of a wealthy businessman in New York. During latest years we have found a lot of American cousins mostly in Fort Bragg, California but also elsewhere. Modern ancestry applications and Facebook have done it possible. Some of those new cousins have been in Finland to see their new cousins. This has been great!One of them – finés – was for the language, and the other one – finlandés – was for the people who live in Finland.There is a Finland, Minnesota in northern Minnesota and Chinatown in San Francisco was origially a Finntown.
When you talk about the people of Finland, you can say that they are Finns or that they are Finnish people. “Finnish”, without a noun next to it, doesn’t refer to the people. Here we can also attach any other noun that links to Finland like “Finnish language”, “Finnish design”, etc. Stream Tracks and Playlists from Finn on your desktop or mobile device
“Norwegians have their funny little things too. My daughter lives there and keeps me informed. Major social differences. For example, it is horrible manners to begin a conversation with a stranger, to even comment on their cute puppy even. Considered intrusive behaviour.”Finns like celebrations and Finland’s calendar of official festivals is not very different from that of other European countries. One major difference is that the Protestant Lutheran calendar does not accommodate all the feast days of Catholic tradition. Visitors may find it strange that Finns have calm and serious festivities on occasions that would be boisterous and joyful in continental Europe.Hi! Fascinating to hear this. This indeed would be a completely normal situation in Finland. 😀 Thanks for sharing!
Amusingly, sometimes the comment makes the situation totally weird. Do not fear if this happens to you, it happens all the time between Finns too. Just smoothly carry on to the next topic of discussion.A meal normally concludes with coffee and postprandial drinks are served with it or immediately after. If the hosts allow smoking, this is the moment to bring out the cigars and cigarettes, unless of course the host has already allowed or suggested this earlier. When leaving the table, the guests should thank the hosts briefly for the fare when they get the chance, regardless of whether the guest of honour has done so or not.Then, we can carry on with the real topics. If it happens that there are no actual topics, well then, we might as well be silent. It’s very natural for a Finn to be silent in a group.
Smoking has decreased in recent years, and attitudes towards it have become more negative. The law prohibits smoking in public buildings and workplaces and, being generally law-abiding, Finns have adapted to this legislation. Nevertheless, smoking is still quite common, in all age groups. International trends have increased the popularity of cigars amongst a minority of tobacco smokers.Hei Nejma! Thank you so much for your awesome comment. I’m so happy to happy you here. You have definitely soul sisters here in Finland! <3In general, busy lifestyles have come to stay and a diary full of meetings and negotiations is a matter of pride and a status symbol in Finland rather than a demonstration of poor scheduling. In such an environment, the time allocated for the entertaining of guests is one of the most important indicators of the value attached to the occasion. When a Finn stops glancing at his watch and suggests something more to eat or drink, or even a sauna, the visitor can rest assured that a lasting business relationship, or friendship, is on the cards.
A guest is expected to dress casually but practically when going to a summer cabin. The hosts will have rubber boots, raincoats and windcheaters that are worn as the weather dictates or when going fishing, picking mushrooms or walking in the forest. An experienced guest understands that under these conditions the hosts, particularly the hostess, have to go to a lot of trouble to give the guest an enjoyable stay. Help with routine chores is greatly appreciated: peeling the potatoes or the onions is a job the guest can safely offer to undertake.

Read on for 10 fun facts about Finnish Americans that Finns But that doesn't mean that Finns only stuck to one place — Finnish immigrants put down roots all over the country Hei Varpu! As an American born in the midwest, it’s been difficult to not fill in the silences with small talk! It’s so funny how different cultures can be, but after about 8 months of living here I’ve gotten a bit better and actually enjoy the quiet. My husband is Finnish and his family is incredibly chatty, which is a nice change from the quiet day-to-day when we go to visit. 🙂 We’ll see how my husband adjusts to Michigan customs when we move with our son next summer!. Sauna and sisu have not only survived, but thrived. Although most Finnish Americans don’t speak Finnish anymore, quite a few words have made it into common usage.Earlier we also said that “Finnish” is an adjective, for example in the case of the language. But since in Finland there are two official languages, we can distinguish between Finnish-speaking Finns and Swedish-speaking Finns. Another language that is not official is the Sámi language. The Sami people born in Finland – some of them are also from Norway and from Sweden – are also Finns. They are sometimes depicted as the original Finns, since they are the native population of the country (they look more like people from Mongolia than what we have in mind about the Finnish people).
Double Vowel Day. Being a keen code-worder a rule of the English languages is NO double A,I or U. Then I met Niina Kaariinimi (now a great friend). keeping an eye out I have discovered Finns also double U’s, and also some double consenants not usually used.The familiar form of address in Finnish (i.e. the second person singular pronoun sinä, as opposed to the formal second person plural pronoun te) is commonly used, not just between friends and acquaintances but among strangers too. It is usual nowadays for people in a workplace to address each other as sinä, up to and including senior management, at least in larger workplaces. Using sinä is common today in service occupations, too, although older people may resent the implied familiarity. However, young people still tend to address middle-aged or elderly people by the formal second person plural if they do not know the persons well.
Mickey Finn would have been a common enough name in Ireland and amongst Irish emigres to the USA. Ernest Jarrold was an author in late 19th century USA who wrote a popular series of newspaper stories called the Mickey Finn stories, from the early 1880s onward. The main character was a small.. Became interested in Finland via the wonderful music of Sibelius – one of my all time favourite composers. Now the interest continues as a new young family has moved into my little cul – de -sac in deepest Berkshire -and guess what ? The dad is Finnish.All of my grandparents settled on Cape Cod. There were lots of Finnish immigrants settling in Massachusetts. Many other places in New England claim Finnish heritage, not just the middle of the US.
Heli Hunter – My husband taught at the middle school in Dassel-Cokato. I recall him remarking on the high number of Finns in the student population.My mom came from Finland in the late 50’s while my dads parents came from Finland in the late 1800’s. On the old homestead where I still live there is an old log sauna. I still use it occasionally. I miss the older folks who were still so Finnish in their ways. In the next few years I want to visit some of those communities in the USA and Canada that still are “all those things Finnish”.

I never realised I was Finnish…….this will be a an uncomfortable conversation with my parents (as they all are).Tipping has never fitted very comfortably into the Finnish way of life. This may have originally been due to the traditions of a religion which emphasized frugality; today, the rather blunt reason for not tipping is that the price paid includes any unusual instances of service or politeness i.e. the view taken is that “service is included”. Tipping does nevertheless exist in Finland, and you can feel safe that while nobody will object to being tipped, very few will mind not being tipped.Combining two of the above comments, a couple of rugs that my grandmother wove are in Fairport Harbor’s Finnish Heritage Museum. I live in Texas now and due to Nokia’s presence, there’s a decent-sized Finnish population near Dallas.The silence extends to phone calls, messages and social media too. For example, if a Finn reads your message, there’s no cultural pressure in Finland to answer it immediately.
I find the spelling of your name to be very interesting. I’ve never thought the spelling of my last name (Wuornos) was how it was originally spelled in Finland. Reading your name and attempting to pronounce it sounds to me to be very similar to mine. I know a little about my Finish heritage but always enjoy learning more.9December 6 is Independence Day, an occasion marked with solemn ceremonial observances. It is a day for remembering those who fell in the wars to protect Finland’s independence, which was achieved in1917. In the evening, the President of the Republic hosts a reception for some 2,000 guests – including the diplomatic corps accredited to Finland – and watching this reception on TV has evolved into a favourite pastime for the entire nation.Although seasons occur everywhere, in Finland they mark the progress of the year with striking conspicuousness. Extending far beyond the Arctic Circle, Finland enjoys such extremes of temperature and daylight that it would not be too far-fetched to say that there are two cultures in Finland: one dominated by the almost perpetual daylight of the summer sun and surprisingly high temperatures, and the other characterized by mercilessly cold winters and Arctic gloom that only briefly gives way to twilight during the day.Having a sauna is something natural to all Finns, yet people do have their own ways of bathing in the sauna. But Finn would never say to another that he is ‘doing it wrong’. It is a matter of preference. This is a good principle to follow for the visitor too: listen to your own body and follow your own rhythm in moving between the hot room, the washing room and the open air, perhaps including the lake or the sea. It is helpful to follow what others are doing, but avoid extremes: some Finns feel the need to demonstrate their tenacity by sitting in a scalding hot sauna for inordinately long periods. In such a situation, a wise visitor will quietly slip out to consume some liquid and enjoy the scenery. On the other hand, it can be equally rewarding to surrender to unknown rituals with an open mind. The feeling of being slapped on the skin with a bundle of soft birch leaves in the heat of the steam room can be a pleasant therapeutic experience.I would then suggest that Hancock, Michigan would at least come in second where Finlandia University is and the street names are in Finnish with Finnish flags on the lamp posts.
On the other hand, please don’t take it personally if a Finn starts a conversation with you and doesn’t even say “How are you?”. She is not being rude. She knows that you are super busy and that’ why she is very straight-forward. Also, she is not being a good, efficient worker, if she wastes her time with chitchatting. Non-Fiction. Finn and Fionna. 660 Reads 22 Votes 3 Part Story. Finn and Jake go to Ice King's fanfiction about Cake and Fionna and Finn realizes how amazing Fionna is Finns are better at listening than at talking, and interrupting another speaker is considered impolite. A Finn does not grow nervous if there are breaks in the conversation; silence is regarded as a part of communication. Finns usually speak unhurriedly, even in their mother tongue (the pace of newsreading on Finnish TV is a source of amusement for many foreigners), and although many Finns are competent in several foreign languages, they may be wary of the speed at which these languages are spoken. Nevertheless, Finns can become excited and voluble, given the right situation.
The import and sale of wines and other alcoholic beverages is largely controlled by the state-owned Alko organisation, and private individuals can only buy alcoholic beverages in Alko shops, with the exception of medium strength beer and cider, which can be bought in food stores. Alko is a major buyer of wines and stocks a wide and geographically representative selection of all qualities, including top labels. Many restaurants import their own wines directly from suppliers abroad.There are numerous women in academic posts, and in recent years visiting businessmen have also found increasing numbers of ‘the fairer sex’ on the other side of the negotiating table. The Evangelical-Lutheran Church of Finland accepts the ordination of women, and there are women priests in numerous parishes. The first female Finnish bishop in the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Finland is Irja Askola. She is reigning Bishop of Helsinki since 2010.New Sweden was founded along the Delaware River in the Mid-Atlantic states of Delaware, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. The colony was populated by Finns and other Nordic immigrants until the Dutch took over the colony in 1655.Some might see the Finnish small talk behavior as escaping social situations aka social avoiding. Indeed, this built-in lack of talk is accepted in all forms of encounters.

I can verify this, I'm a finn and I (really) speak this language ;D And the word is Kurkku Great! I like Finkand so much. Maybe, because I’m from a country so far and different that it captured my attention. I have a question for you, is it ok to say for instance, “he’s from Finnish instead of Finland? Thank you for sharing what you learnt. Finns are talkative and hospitable, but the myth of the withdrawn Finn is still alive and well inside Finland. And Finns, with their self-deprecating wit, will be the first to let foreigners in on it. An example of a Finnish joke: An introverted Finn looks at his shoes when talking to you; an extroverted Finn.. The Finnish spoken in U.S.gets frozen. Pulla is the modern word. When I went with my father to Finland in the 70’s, my cousins were falling off their chairs at many of the expressions he used from the language that existed decades earlier but had moved on in Finland. Their favorite was when he was earnestly explaining how he had come over in the “flying machine.” Finns have a strong sense of national identity. They would be happy if visitors knew something about the achievements of well-known Finns in sports and culture. It is also perfectly acceptable to request mineral water or non-alcoholic wine with a meal. Lunch is usually accompanied by non-alcoholic..
Receiving gifts is another thing. Nowadays, there isn’t a clear ritual in Finland whether to open the gift immediately or later. Back in the day, you usually opened the gift later, sometimes even after the person had left.Smokers are expected to be considerate. When invited to a private home, a guest should ask the hosts if they object to smoking, even if there are ashtrays visible. Smokers may be guided to the balcony, which may have the effect of reducing the intake of nicotine considerably in cold weather.

I can’t stand small talk!!! I either have to say a LOT, or say nothing at all! I used to have a Finnish friend here, at my school. Because of our schedules, we could never have a 30 minute discussion on anything. And after our “small talks”, I would walk away happy to see her, but at the same time, kinda infuriated that I can’t have a real conversation!! (Just 1 among a few other things that make me emotional!!! >:( Who invented small talk anyway!? (More on what makes me emotional on the “5 things that make Finns emotional” post!) It’s not like I don’t want to small talk, I just don’t know how to do it. Plus, I don’t like small talk, and if I do it by accident, I’ll be secretly fuming inside. Argh!The Finns took the Cornish Pasty, added rutabaga, made it a Pasty shape and went into business selling them. They started COOP stores, saunas, Paul Bunyan logging, the only ethical university in the country and pukka fighting.
Before I begin, I’d like to say that as this is a cultural thing, there isn’t “one truth only” by any means. Everyone will have their own encounters and experiences in Finland based on the length and type of their stay and the area(s) they visit. Finns Bali has rapidly grown and is currently the parent company to Finns Beach Club, Finns VIP Beach Club, Finns Recreation Club, Body Temple Spa, Cubby House Kids Club, Bali Res Centre, and more. The group is focused on creating experiences for those who live and travel to Bali..
Obviously I have too much selfesteem to suffer of all these problems. How do these people ever get into intimacy with somebody if they are so afraid of clothness?Funnily enough, I can translate some of a debate that we had on the Spanish Big in Finland website about the words “finés” and “finlandés”, since they are often used as synonyms despite not quite being the same.
Thank you so much for your comment Mike! I don’t understand where my original reply has vanished but I just realized that it’s not here! Small talk is definitely one of those cultural things which varies a lot! Swedish: finns vs vara. Thread starter Lili Marlen. So I understand that roughly speaking, finns is more like exist and vara is simply to be, but I am still confused about some other contexts Visitors should also be prepared to encounter the other side of the Finnish national character: Finns are chronically insecure about whether the wider world is aware of the achievements of this northern nation. Finns love reading things written about them abroad, and visitors should not feel uncomfortable being asked repeatedly what they think of Finland. However, although Finns are ready enough to criticize their own country, they do not necessarily wish to hear visitors doing so.A Finn’s mother tongue is either Finnish, Swedish (5.6% of the population are Swedish speakers) or Saami (some 8,000 native speakers). Finnish belongs to the small Finno-Ugrian language group; outside Finland it is understood (and to some extent spoken) in Estonia. And in Sweden, too, Finnish is spoken among the large number of Finnish immigrants. Finns take care of their linguistic communication by maintaining a wide range of foreign languages in the school curriculum.Cool…I’m technically English (half Welsh-Irish, half Anglo-Austrian) and I find it bizarre that the English can small talk their way through several hours of boringness without saying anything useful. So family gathering were always really weird….I’m very quiet myself, unless I get onto one of my pet subjects (maybe crystals, or the properties of herbs or something like that), when I’ll probably do a neat 5-minute lecture unless interrupted or stopped. I used to, anyway. I’m talkative/eloquent on paper/online, but quiet normally, as I need to think before I talk to decide if it’s worth saying anything at all!
Finn is the hottest guy you will ever see. He is thoughtfull and funny. Finn's are usually sensitive also well dressed. Finn's have the hottest body's, they also have soft Finn is also smart. He may not be the sharpest but he knows his way around problems and can help anybody out to the best of his ability As other people would just smile and say thank you, a Finn usually finds a way to somehow belittle her own contribution to the given praise.
At work in Finland, you can just start telling your business immediately to the other person. To be more precise, you should start telling your business immediately and not waste time wandering around the subject.I am a Finn from both sides. My parents grew up in Covington MI. They would speak Finn but didn’t teach us kids. One day at the dinner table I understood what they were saying. However, I can’t seem to understand how to put a sentence together. I had the privilege of spending a summer in Finland when I was 16. Mostly in Oulu and Lahti. We maintain contact with some relatives in Finland with hopes to visit again.Finnish cuisine has western European, Scandinavian and Russian elements. Table manners are European. Breakfast can be quite substantial. Lunch is usually eaten between 11.00 and 13.00, a typical lunch break at work lasting less than an hour. The once common long business lunches have shrunk to 90 minutes or two hours. Evening meals at home are eaten around 17.00-18.00. In most restaurants, dinners are served from 18.00 onwards. Many restaurants stop serving food about 45 minutes before they actually close, so it is worthwhile checking the serving times when booking a table. Concerts and theatre performances usually begin at 19.00, and audiences adjourn to restaurants at around 22.00.Bemidji MN is home to the Corcordia Language Villages which has a Finnish village.

Finns. Introduction. Subgroups. Balto-Finnic peoples. Sweden Finns. Other groups. Terminology There were 20 Finns, 20 Italians, and 10 Japanese. It was a nice triangle as each national group showed great interest in the exotic nature of the two other countries. The Finns drank coffee from flasks and proposed an early descent. Sliding down mud is almost worse than going up it Finns even had to be taught how to chit chat when interacting with non-Finns: As Tiina Latvala, a former English instructor in Sodankylä, Lapland, explained, part of her job was to introduce her young students to the concept of small talk.

Life was good.A greater cultural challenge for the visitor is accepting an invitation to one of the innumerable summer dwellings that dot the seashores and lakeshores of Finland. One in four Finns owns a summer cabin, and for many, it is regarded as a second home. Sociologists like to explain that the summer dwelling is a tie that Finns maintain to their rural past; and it is true that many Finns transform into surprisingly competent fishermen, gardeners, farmers, carpenters or foresters when they withdraw to their summer homes.

Often – and in the case of Swedish-speaking Finns, almost always – a meal is preceded by schnapps, a shot of vodka or aquavit in a tiny glass. This is considered an integral part of cold fish courses, and absolutely essential with crayfish. Swedish-speaking Finns have a custom of enlivening the occasion with a line or two of a drinking song before each shot of schnapps. Big dinner parties have an appointed toastmaster who determines the interval between shots and leads the singing. Finnish-speaking Finns have a less elaborate and less structured drinking etiquette, although there are schnapps songs in Finnish too. Schnapps is usually accompanied by mineral water, or sometimes beer, which is also commonly served with meals. Beer is also used to slake the thirst created by the sauna.
Share this Rating. Title: I rymden finns inga känslor (2010) Social avoiding hits another level especially when Finns are abroad and spot another Finn. I was unsure whether or not to write about this but I will, because cultural things are the essence of my blog and, also, because I think this Finnish feature is hilarious and true.

Rankings History With the advent of winter, Finns close down their summer dwellings, store their boats in dry dock, put snow tyres on their cars, stash their golf gear in the basement and check their skis. Whereas the rural ancestors of today’s Finns whiled away the long winter days in making and repairing tools for summer, their descendants labour in offices to make their country an increasingly efficient and modern high-tech marvel.
Long story short: there are many occasions, in which we Finns are silent and sometimes even pretend we are not Finns to avoid the social situation that might otherwise occur. Here are three examples.A nation of five million people with 1.5 million saunas has no need to acquire a formal sauna education – learning to bathe in the sauna comes as naturally as learning to speak. Visitors would do well to have their first encounter with the sauna in the company of a Finnish friend or acquaintance, rather than following a mechanical set of instructions that reduces sauna bathing to a drill by numbers.Having once got to know a stranger moderately well, Finns are quite willing to discuss any topic; generally not even religion or politics are taboo. Finland is one of the world’s leaders in the reading of books and newspapers and the use of libraries, and thus the average Finn is fairly well informed on what is happening in Finland and in the world. Finland’s membership of the EU has increased interest in other EU countries, and the common currency, the status of agriculture and the effects of Community legislation are viable topics of conversation wherever two or three Union citizens come together. Though Finns enjoy bitching about the niggling directives of ‘Brussels bureaucrats’ as much as the next man, in general they seem to approve of EU membership and recognise its benefits.As a rule, service is included in restaurant bills. However, an extra service charge is often added to bills which are to be paid by a customers’ employers. Those who pay for their own meals and in cash often choose to round the bill up to the nearest convenient figure. This does not require any complicated arithmetic from the customer, as no one cares whether the tip really is 10-15% of the total bill.Hei Rich! Lovely to hear about your experiences here in Finland! Most Finns indeed speak great English. Some may be shy to use it in the countryside, though. An encouraging smile goes a long way! And yes, there are definitely talkative Finns too 😀 I feel that I’m talkative when I’m with friends & family and have had enough sleep (baby year, oh dear :D). I’d say that we Finns don’t have “the inbuilt need” to small talk so we feel very comfortable just being silent in a group.

Born and raised in the U.P. of Michigan now in NC. A couple things I’d add to the list are home made woven rugs . A lot of Finnish women had looms and made the nicest and most durable rugs out of scraps, rags, old coats, etc. I still have a couple. And the yummy thing of dunking hard cinnamon toast in coffee. The toast is still made in some of the U.P. bakeries. I do miss those Scandinavian things.
Hei Helena! Thank you so much for your support! I appreciate it more than you know! Kiitos <3 I can totally understand that Finnish quietness may be misunderstood in other countries. So happy to hear that you are balanced with your roots! Thank you so much for commenting! The modern Finns and Estonians have many cultural links to Scandinavia and North Germany however they are still not usually considered Scandinavian The modern Finns and Hungarians are both considered very European even though their ancestors originally came from Central Asia long ago.. From Old English Finnas (Finns, plural), from Old Norse Finnr (a Finn, a Sami), a 'finder' of food, referring to nomadic hunter-gatherers. Finn (plural Finns). A national of Finland. A person of ethnic Finnish ancestry, a non-Swedish Finlander. An Old and Middle Irish form of Fionn. Finn Finns can kiss as well as the next nation, but they rarely do so when greeting. Hand-kissing is rare. Friends and acquaintances may hug when meeting, and kisses on the cheek are not entirely unknown, although this habit is not generally found in rural areas. There is no special etiquette regarding the number of kisses on the cheek; however, most Finns feel that three kisses is going a bit far. Men very rarely kiss each other in greeting, and never on the mouth in the manner of our eastern neighbours.As a Finnish ex-pat , visiting Finland every summer, this discussion brings memories of summers in our cabin in Central Finland. It still is our “Finnish Labor Camp”.
