I love that the President of Finland and King and Queen of Finland simply mingle with people and do not distance themselves. This rendition of Finlandia by Sibelious is simply beautiful. … I meant to write King and Queen of Sweden. Sorry for the typo…
I’ll have candles on the windowsill, we’ll drink a toast to the wonderful 100-year-old fatherland!!!! ❤️
As the public has been mobilised by positive ways and events, could this be continued? The next 100 years of Finland?
We marked the centenary by having a son, Lionel; at hospital, we were given lovely Finland 100 woolly socks and a hat knitted by the Marthas. 🇫🇮💙
I’m not celebrating … Anyway, some of the products by the Finland 100 brands are made in low-cost countries, maybe even using child labour. I’m not interested.
Thank you for allowing us to be involved. It was easier to forge links with other participants when we mentioned that we had been approved for participation in the programme.
This project again emphasised the importance of teamwork in a small town. Everyone who was asked to contribute did so.
The centenary of our independence is an amazing vantage point. This is exactly what we need: a clear view into the great arches of our own history as well as the stories forgotten under the jubilee events.
