A Juhannus Eve's Celebration!

Published: June 22, 2018

Today was so full of activities, we couldn't possibly put all of the pictures on this blog (head over to Airtable to see them!).  In the morning, we played kivi paperi sakset, and if you lost you had to join the train until there was a single winner. Villagers made karjalanpiirakka in the morning to be enjoyed later. Some games played today included mölkky and sulkapallo while other villagers opted to continue working on their crafts.


After a picnic dinner, villagers put on their finest clothes and had a tanssi! The night ended by singing songs around the fire while watching the sun set over the lake.
