6 signs you were born and raised in Finland

The Finnish people. We’re a sauna bathing, ice hole swimming, metal music loving and often very gloomy group.

    I hate that pronouncing is made so big and important thing at school. That’s the reason why Finnish people think they don’t speak English (I think). If they could speak rallyenglish, everybody speaks English quite good 😀 at least I do 😀

    Sounds the same like the life of an immigrant in United Kingdom 🙂 , especially points 1,2 and 5 🙂 Nice article. I am going to visit Finland soon and I find this website useful for this. Thanks

      Sometimes stores give you an offer to take a bucket and fill it with example apples as many as you can and you get them all with the price mentioned. Buckets are pretty important to us specially if you have a summerhouse and a sauna. There’s just so many uses for buckets in our lives so one extra bucket is amazing to have.

    My English is great, but yours is better – you will not hear this in Finland. There is no other nation that is at the same time humble but also envy´s a lot.
