Valentine’s Day. Taunting reminders of your hollowing loneliness if you’re single. Being forced to spend a ridiculous amount of money on heart-shaped balloons and stuffed animals if you’re in a relationship. Fortunately, not in Finland!
In Finland, Valentine’s Day is uncommercial and celebrates friendship rather than romantic love (the day is even referred to as ystävänpäivä, which translates to friends’ day).
Here are 7 reasons Valentine’s Day is just that much better in Finland!
Do people really still buy teddy bears?
Sounds like a great inclusive way to celebrate to me:)
Candlelit dinner are pratically a necessity in Finnish winter!!!
What if you have no friends either? Double broken?
Threesome FTW 🙂
I love EVERYONE anyway! Don’t need to no fake celebration to prove it.
Valentines is just made up bullshit to sell cards. Fact.
As if buying heart-shaped balloons, cute cards and expensive dinners is a bad thing. Man, no wonder Finnish people suck at relationships. Things that are good, warm and romantic in other countries are not acceptable in Finland.
Threesome. Sold! 🙂
Finnish valentine should be exported everywhere! It would save many broken hearts
