It's time for the Finnish Independence Day again. I was going to be really patriotic and dress up in blue&white, however I realized I don't really own that many white shirts or tops. I suppose my pale skin is quite close to white though! This is my today's facebook status which pretty much sums up my feelings for today:
I would light up the traditional two candles - one for those who died while fighting for our country and one for those who made it back home - but we aren't allowed candles in our accommodation. Nonetheless, this is what I'll be thinking about today. Especially, my grandpa, who also would've been 95 this year. I'm sure my patriotism today would've made him proud, after all he and all the other soldiers did for Finland.
