Today, we had a picnic at sorsapuisto together for celebrating Wappu-eve. Wappu is one of the biggest holidays in Finland. In this period, many Finnish people wearing overalls, a white hat and there are lots of traditional events. We joined to Kiia and her school mates. To be honest, I worried a little bit cause there are so many Finnish students who wearing overalls! But Kiia and her friends warmly welcomed us. Kiia said every faculty has their own overalls. That’s why I could see so many colorful overalls. In Korea University, we also have that kind of tradition. Each faculty has their own jacket.
I’ve never seen such a lively and crowded Tampere before. But it was a very pleasant experience without feeling noisy. I could feel real spring comes to Finland!
