    How Blond and Dumb Are the Finns, Really?
    Finnish culture, what is it all about? Some might picture the reindeer and the snow and even the Santa Clause. Yes he DOES live in the North Pole and yes, North Pole does exist in Finland, every kid in Finland knows that as a fact.
    But I think many people have quite wrong idea about Finnish culture. Most Finns have nothing to do with any kind of deer and do not own any colorful "tribe" type of clothing.
    Finns love music and dance. There is dance restaurants in every town and older folks tango and polka with ease. Then there is the other side. Many Finns are somber, they do not want to be bothered. There is this over all attitude telling foreigners to stay in the distance. Finland is quite big country but has only 5 million people living in there. And trust me, they want to keep it that way!
    Don't get me wrong, tourists are welcome and they get to see all the "traditional" Finnish pastimes, including the sauna and vodka. But if you want to dig little deeper you'll find out that Finns are well educated and often speak several languages and they had cell phones before most Americans even dreamed of owning one. Yes, Nokia is Finnish brand.

    Penkkarit 2006
    I love penkkarit [read No more Latin, No more French... if you are unfamiliar with the tradition] as it's hard not to enjoy trucks filled with drunk, happy teenagers tossing candy into the streets of Helsinki. At my Catholic high school, the nuns let us have a full day of mass for such sorts of events. They sure knew how to have fun. It's no wonder my entertainment threshold is so low. I'm sure the just the thought of penkkarit would have given them all the vapours. Last year I swore that, since I had the flu, next year I would go down to the Merisatama on the southern edge of town to take pictures [ see map of penkkarit routes (~400k)from the HS . These don't change much from year to year, if at all]. This year I had a blistering migrane due to my tooth problem, but I forced myself to go as it was an unusually beautiful sunny day and penkkarit always makes me smile. The HS had an interesting article about the history and folklore of Penkkarit (~60k pdf, suomeksi). Helena Saarikoski is apparently the folklorist in residence on Penkkarit and has published a study

      The Finnish food culture is influenced by Western and Eastern traditions. Nearness of the sea and thousands of lakes and the high share of forested land area in the country, approximately 70 percent, offer Finnish cuisine pure natural raw ingredients such as fish, berries and mushrooms but international meals like pizza are among favourites of children and youth as well. The school system provides a free warm daily meal for children which is internationally unique. Karelian pasties that have their origin in eastern part of the country are sold in almost every bakery and store. The scouts and guides eat the traditional Finnish buns often at the bonfire, wrapping a thin piece of the dough in a spiral form around an approximately 2 cm thick wooden stick of ca one meter length and baking it on an open fire.

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search This article needs attention from an expert on the subject . See the talk page for details. WikiProject Culture or the Culture Portal may be able to help recruit an expert. (November 2008) The Culture of Finland combines indigenous heritage, as represented for example by the country's rare Finno-Ugric national language Finnish and the sauna , with common Nordic and European culture. Because of its history and geographic location Finland has been influenced by the adjacent areas' various Finnic, Baltic and Germanic peoples as well as the former dominant powers Sweden and Russia . Finnish culture may be seen to build upon the relatively ascetic environmental realities, traditional livelihoods and a heritage of egalitarianism , (see e.g.: Everyman's right and universal suffrage ) and the traditionally widespread ideal of self-sufficiency (see, e.g.: Summer cottage There are still cultural differences between Finland's regions, especially minor differences in accents and vocabulary. Minorities, some of which enjoy a status recognised by the state, such as the Sami Swedish-speaking Finns Romani Jews , and Tatar , maintain their own cultural characteristics. Many Finns are emotionally connected to the countryside and nature, as large scale urbanisation is a relatively recent phenomenon.

Finnish, unlike Scandinavian languages, is not Germanic but in a class of its own. Theoretically, it is related to Hungarian but in practice the two are not mutually comprehensible. The other official language, Swedish , is spoken by around 6% of the population, most of whom live in the south west and are also speakers of Finnish. Sami is a minority language in Scandinavia that is spoken by around 2,000 people living in the north of Finland, which is 0.03% of the Finnish population.
    Nordic but not Scandinavian . Finland along with Iceland is Nordic rather than Scandinavian.
    . This is reflected in their language which is not Germanic in origin.

        Christ to Bishop Hemming, in St Birgitta, Revelationes I.52
      Bishop Hemming and St Birgitta, Urdiala, Finland
    D uring many of her Revelations, St Birgitta of Sweden (1303-1373) heard Christ and the Virgin reveal the will of God, which she was to pass on to secular and clerical rulers, as well as to common people. These messages often fiercely urged their recipients to repent so that their souls would be saved from divine anger, and God's peace could rule the world. The spiritual messages were intertwined with visions for the practical reform of the church and secular kingdoms, which in Birgitta's day were troubled by wars, the Papacy's dislocation in Avignon (1309-1377) and epidemic of the plague later known as the Black Death (1347-1351). Bishop Hemming and Prior Peter made their journey between 1346 and 1349. Their mission was to deliver to the Pope Birgitta's Revelation which lamented the decline of the Papacy. This Brigittine Revelation urged the Pope to reform his own lasciviousness, to cease supporting the King of France, and to return the Papal See to Rome. In Birgitta's Revelation Christ spoke directly to Clement:
      It will not remain a secret how at your time greed and ambition flourished in the Church, and how many things you could have reformed and improved, but you, lover of the flesh, balked.

    Kalevala, the National Epic
    The national epic KALEVALA is the most famous Finnish work of art from the era of Romanticism. It explores the depths of the Finnish cultural identity thousands of years back, and yet gives a vision of the future. Kalevala still is an important source of inspiration for both writers, painters and musicians.
    Classical Music
    During the last century, the imposing figure of JEAN SIBELIUS (1865-1957) dominated the country's musical life. His extensive output includes
    • seven symphonies,
    • numerous symphonic poems and orchestral suites, as well as
    • a number of elegant minor works.
    His masterpiece "Finlandia" touches every Finn just as deeply as the national anthem "Our Land".
    International stars among the opera singers are
    • MATTI SALMINEN (born 1945, bass),
    • JORMA HYNNINEN (born 1941, baryton) and

    • You are familiar with many TV personalities and celebrities, Finnish and foreign. The latter are, in decreasing order of probability, American, English, Scandinavian (rarely), French or German (very, very rarely). You believe in the news on TV and in the newspapers. In fact, you are used to believing in most of what you read or hear people are supposed to "say what they mean" or remain silent. You have (or you plan to have) a family, which means a spouse and 1 to 3 children (but not having one doesn't mean a catastrophe). It's possible that you are a single or divorced parent, even a mother who has never wanted to marry or live with the father of her child(ren). You may state that "old people should be respected", but you know you don't have to obey your parents, at least not if you are over 18.

The weather is actually bnormally warm for them. It is in the low 30s with a mix of rain and snow. It is normally quite colder and with more snow for this time of the year. We walked through town today to the market. Our host gave us a tour of the market and introduced us to Pula (pastries). They have a lot of good bread and pastries. Things are quite expensive here but a lot of things are very similar to the US although it is a socialist country. Taxes are very high and they have to pay for everything including parking at a store, the bags in the store. You also have to pay to use a bathroom which is approximately $1.50. Gas is about $7.50 a gallon. The terrain is beautiful lots of evergreens and hilly. The roads are good and if you didn't look at the signs you would think you were in the Northern U.S. They are very industrialized. Nokia is a large employer. They are only allowed to paint their houses red, yellow, and a few pastels.

    Welcome to the Department of Germanic Languages and Literatures at Columbia University! The department, recognized as one of the very best in the country, offers a variety of language and literature programs: The Undergraduate Program In German:
    German majors and concentrators acquire proficiency in examining literary, philosophical, and historical texts in the original, as well as critical understanding of German culture and society. Particular attention is given to German-speaking traditions within larger European and global contexts. Courses taught in translation build on Columbia's Core Curriculum, thereby allowing students to enroll in upper-level seminars before completing the language requirement. First- and second-year courses in the German language program emphasize spoken and written communication, and provide a basic introduction to German culture. The Graduate Program In German:
    The graduate program in German literature and culture (M.A., M.Phil., Ph.D.) incorporates a strong literary and theoretical orientation with cultural studies and cultural history. The program has a historical focus of roughly 1700 to the present. Students have the opportunity to combine their study of literature, literary theory, and intellectual history with coursework and research beyond the department.
