  1. There are thousands of lakes filled with cold water in Finland. So that's why it's small. Normally it'd be, like, totally big.

  2. the vantaa four biggest city in finland it is know there is no lakes there, because it is the low-lying city near Helsinki. There is a river 😉

  3. Thank you for sharing this.
    I like the host, very kind and nice.
    Now I have taken a kalsarikännit

  4. Why does she sound all the time like they are playing Alias or some other word explaining games and time is running out?

  5. I've seen here and in other places and comments later that words like
    "lentokonesuihkuturbiinimoottoriapumekaanikkoaliupseerioppilas" would be
    long Finnish words.

    They are not, it's just a composite of several words like "airplane jet engine motor help mechanic…." etc.

    The long and complex words in Finnish are similar to they, them, their,
    themselves etc. the Y, M, IR, MSELVES are not words, they are just ways
    to change the words to different possesives and persons.

  6. Joulupukki was the predecessor of Santa Claus. A guy wore a goat mask, got drunk and went from door to door scaring kids (18th-19th C).
    That one sure changed a bit over the years. Wish we still did that…

  7. Actually this TV host pronounced that "Me tulemme takaisin." perfectly (well small accent can be heard but still) but like x2 speed at 0:54
