no ;-;
I wish I would...
but hey! at least I will have my very own finnish christmas since my host sister will come over for the winter break!
and well I can be nostalgic about Finland with other finnish expats here in Montreal at the Finnish Bazaar on November 29th, eating karjalanpiirakka and pulla. I will buy tons of fazer chocolate bars, jenkki gum and other stuff. If I can find some cool movie there, I will buy one!

NO, unfortunately I won't.

But like last year I plan to bake something typical for Finland!

Any suggestions?

Thumbs up

This will be my first Christmas in Finland in 10 years. It'll be the first one with my sister's kids, which is really exciting. I can't wait to see my best friend's baby and my other friends either. It'll be very exciting even if I am freezing my butt off. hehehe...

I can't wait to have ham and carrot casserole, herring and new potatoes, and many many other Christmas foods.

well in towns where there are finnish community there might be some finnish bazaar. I know there are a lot of Finns in Thunder Bay, Toronto and Ottawa. and a few here in Montreal. There is a finnish church, where they held this bazaar and finnish classes.
