Finnish Independence Day

Thursday December 6 was the 90th birthday of Finnish Independence. Yvette and I decided to celebrate by watching the Finnish movie "The Man Without a Past", which I received on my birthday from Jenni. It was a rainy day, so most of the outdoor activities like parades and candle-light vigils we missed out on. Even so, we couldn't find any information online about the times of these events, at least in English. That night, we went out to Savotta, a Finnish restaurant downtown and had a wonderful dinner. When we got back, we watched part of the presidential ball and saw Prof. Markku Kulmala on the TV.
