Finland。Helsinki。Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

 Before Christmas, there is another relative party called "Pikkujoulu" (little Christmas). It is a kind of non-formal, highly festive party, are held from around end of October to December by various communities, organizations, companies, or just among friends.

首先,在聖誕節之前還有個小聖誕,芬蘭語 Pikkujoulu。各個公司行號機關學校,或是親朋好友之間所自行舉辦的一種慶祝活動。時間不一定,可能從十月底到十二月都有,形式也不一定,但大多是還是吃吃喝喝,總之就是等聖誕節等的心焦了,偷跑先來慶祝一下啦!



"Taiwanese in Suomi" also held Pikkujoulu in middle of December. we had lunch meeting in Asian food restaurant, played some small games and exchanged gifts.

臺灣芬蘭協會也不免俗了來一個小聖誕活動,大夥去中餐館聚餐,順便玩小遊戲&交換禮物!




For Christmas, people usually stay at home, get together with family, to eat, chat , and relax. It is similar with the Chinese culture "surrounding the stove", means people gather around the table to eat Chinese New Year's Eve dinner.
I was lucky to join my friend's family christmas dinner. It was lovely opportunity for me to experience and understand how Finns celebrate this special day.
In addition to this, when I visited supermarket, it was nice to see my old friend - Hyacinth, that I worked with it when I was in Australia. It is a kind of Christmas flowers in Finland!

聖誕節則像是臺灣的過年,各家各戶準備聖誕晚餐,家庭成員團聚、放鬆聊天,就像是"圍爐"的西方版本。這次很開心能受邀參與朋友的家庭聚餐,到朋友姊姊家共同享受這特別的聖誕饗宴。行前為了伴手禮特地Google了一下,發現風信子是芬蘭的聖誕傳統花卉之一;趕忙跑去超市採購,還有到哪都行得通的巧克力,用來賄賂小朋友和大人都很有用~




hi~ nice to see you again in Finland's supermarket ~
這澳洲認識的老朋友,咱們又在芬蘭的超市相見了!



After delicious Christmas dinner, everyone chatted, watched TV. I also practiced my Finnish with children. However, the 7 years old boy didn't understand easily my Finnish, so sad~~ seems I better to practice with 1 yours old little girl.....

一頓豐盛的耶誕大餐後,大家一起看電視聊天。順便找主人家的小朋友練習芬蘭語,話說我的簡易芬蘭語居然讓七歲小朋友一頭霧水,真是令人難過.....,我還是跟一歲的妹妹練習好了.....

:-P :-P


Then New Year came after Christmas. I went to Helsinki city center to join the official new year party. wow, I never see so many people since I came to Finland~

圍爐耶誕過後一周就是跨年了,興沖沖的跑到赫爾辛基市區參加官方的跨年晚會與煙火,發現居然還不少人耶~~~這是很難得的在芬蘭感受到人氣,不愧是新年!





The performances started from 10:45 pm, it included hip-hop, fire dancing, small circus, singing ... etc, these programs were good! It came to New Year's Eve countdown soon. Midnight!! Happy New Year! the fireworks was beautiful~

表演從晚上十點四十五分開始,雖然時間不長約一小時左右內容還蠻豐富的,街舞、火球舞、小型的馬戲表演、歌手唱歌...等,不知不覺就倒數囉。跟著大家一同欣賞新年煙火,散場後的市區人潮真的挺壯觀~~
