I AM A FINN

HERE ARE ALL THE BEAUTIFUL WORDS AND EXPRESSIONS YOU CAN TRIUMPH WITH IN HELSINKI. AND SOME JOKES TOO. PLEASE DO NOT FEEL OFFENDED WHEN YOU ARE A FINN AND READING THIS RIGHT NOW. WE LOVE YOU.

This is a real email, received in Summer 2004 from a very serious Finn. We call it “Finnish Storm”.  Please note the foto attached…

"With all the news on TV lately about the extreme weather conditions affecting the East Coast of the US, the mud slides in the Middle East and South America, the flood that made its mark on Southern England, along with the dire predictions made by such films as The Day After Tomorrow, we shouldn’t forget that Finland has its share of devastating weather too.

I’ve attached a photo illustrating the damage caused to my home from a storm that passed through South-Western Finland last week. It really makes you cherish what you have, and reminds us not to take things for granted!”

1 joke to lighten up the last hours of work before the weekend: 

Finnish Extroverts

How can you tell the difference between a Finnish introvert and a Finnish extrovert?
When he’s talking to you, a Finnish introvert looks at his feet.
A Finnish extrovert looks at yours.

******************************************************************

It fits in all situations where you can prove your physical or mental power to be strong…especially in the Finnish winters. So take your bike to work at 8 am, on a -30 degrees cold January morning and feel SISU. Also, any stubbornness can now be seen in a positive way, you know!
