Red Face Day - Vappu, May 1st

There will be maaaany red faces in Finland after today. The sun is up with a clear sky, it is the very first summer-like day in Finland after the looong winter. Temp in the sun already at 09:30 am was +18C.. When you combine that with the carneval style alcohol consumption we had yesterday all over and tend to have on May 1st, the red face coctail is ready!

Today the Ullanlinnanmäki at Helsinki will be packed with drunk picnic people!

What surprised me a bit this morning, was the B-section's front page of Helsingin Sanomat, that had the King with his orage people all over. Still, the Queen's Day will not be the King's Day...

Have a great Vappu - Wappu - Walborg day - where ever you are!
