Independence Day at Ruka - Centenary 2017
Independence Day - itsenäisyyspäivä - is a national public holiday in Finland, held on 6th December. It was first celebrated in 1917. It is traditional for many Finnish families to light two blue-white candles in each window of their home in the evening. And many shops decorate their windows in blue and white. Normally on 6th December shops and offices are closed in Finland, but in Ruka village most of the services are open for you. Welcome to join the centenary celebration!
