Finland's Independence Day

By November 29, 2013

Don't be surprised when on December 6, businesses remain closed in Finland. December 6 is Independence Day in Finland and as such, is celebrated as a national holiday.

In the past 15-20 years, Finns have begun to mark their Independence Day with window decorations in stores, public flag displays and other patriotic decorative items in the blue and white of the Finnish flag. There are a few local events - most with free admission - announced locally.
