Laskiainen 2013 in Oulu

Laskiainen is my favorite Finnish celebration day. And what’s not to love?

It’s a day full of colourful overalls, sledding competitions and creamy, jammy pulla (a Finnish cake). It’s one of the few times you will see adult Finns en masse laughing (and even screaming) while having fun sledding down hills.
