Well I am ashamed, This is a few days late, but I have been sick for several days so I apologize Finland and as it says in the title, better late than never. Happy Independence! Yes, I celebrate this one too in my home. My husband and I are not of the same nationality. So we honor these things for both our nations of origin.
Finland, you are a proud country and nearly 4 days ago we did honor you by lighting the candles. Every time I look at what you are doing in the world and within your own borders I find myself admiring you more. May you continue on independent and proud. And for those that died obtaining Finland’s independence even as far away as the USA their memory lives on.
I am so glad I have had the opportunity to get to know this incredible and under recognized country and it’s culture and people so well. Happy Independence.
Love from your American admirer in Boston
