The Finnish Valborg - Student life high light of the year. It is celebration of Spring and Labor day combined. They have been talking about this event ever since I arrived the first week of September. And I have to agree Vappu is something special. The atmospere has been very cheerful for over a week but especially the past three days. It is a noticeble contrast to the normal more reserved and careful Finnish style. The whole city has really come to life.  Both young and old have been wearing there student caps and overalls and if not owning any of those, something else festive. For example a baloon :D

The drink Sima (mead) and pastry munkki (sugar donut) are Vappu specialties.
