  • Finland 100 years


    In less than two hours we celebrate 100th year of Finnish independence.

    The Saana mountain in northern Finland was among the buildings and landmarks being lit up in blue this weekend

    To mark its century-long independence from Russia (and before that Sweden), the "Finland 100" organization asked countries around the world to light up their special monuments, buildings and natural landmarks in honor of the anniversary.

    The Colosseum in Rome, Adelaide Town Hall in Australia, Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro and the Niagara Falls in Canada are among the objects donning Finland's national colors, white and blue, on Wednesday December 6.

    Finland's centennial celebrations kick off with coffee, buns -- and karaoke

    Celebrations marking Finland's 100th anniversary of independence get underway Tuesday with events ranging from a special plenary session of Parliament to patriotic singalongs in karaoke bars.

                          They didn't give it to us in the end. Norway is such a tease.

                            It was always a long shot. As mentioned in the article:

                            In this case, the problems were insurmountable. The lofty gift-giving idea ran up against article 1 of the Norwegian constitution, which stipulates that the kingdom of Norway is “indivisible and inalienable”.
