Colorful - Easter traditions in Finland

Spring is advancing, so here is a colorful set of photographs. I have mentioned Finnish Easter traditions in 2009 and in 2010, and now is that time again.

Short summary: Children are dressed as easter witches. Then they go from house to house and get candy. With our three daughters the preparation for this is quite a big thing.

Years are diffent. This year the snow lasted a long time, but today on Palm Sunday we are having +15 °C, a great day for spending time outside.

Today was also parliamentary election day in Finland. I expect the voting rate will be quite high, not only because of the nice weather but also because the heated discussions happening during campaigns.

Oh - and the first spring flowers are emerging. Now it feels like spring.
