8th meeting: Itsenäisyyspäivää

We celebrated together the finnish Independence day. After we met at the joulutori we tried to walk through the masses of people to see the firework. We found a nice place behind the church. While walking through the masses, everybody started singing the finnish national anthem Maame. It was really surprising for me to see it, because we celebrate our national day not really that big. I know that it was a exception, because it was the 100th anniversary, but still it was really fascinating to watch. After the national anthem, the firework started while Finlandia from Sibelius was playing. It was really amazing. After that we went to Jack Roosters and had some food and a couple of beers to end the evening.
