Welcome again, Laura! We are glad to learn of your customs and about Finland in general.

Your English is very well. Don't worry, we will ask you what you mean if we do not undestand.

I live in Alabama USA. We don't get much snow here. So, I like the phots that are posted of snow.

I do have a question, CEF. In another section we have started talking about how early it gets dark and how some folks get depressed because of it. In the winter there, how much daylight do you have? How does it affect people?

There you can read something about Finnish winter:

Actually, because we do have snow in here, so that helps a lot in dark days. But yeah, most of the people depress of it, but maybe not so bad.
