Finnish Christmas Carols and Songs. Christmas in Finland it’s the time spent with family during the festive, traditional supper. Christmas is the most important holiday of the year – as in many other countries. Evidence of this is even the name of the month December – “Joulukuu” – “Christmas month”. Shortly before Christmas in the homes there are the traditional Christmas tree. Christmas Eve is a very important for Finns. Finns have a tradition of “Christmas sauna“.
During the holiday season are popular in Suomi concerts in churches, but the Finns, due to the fact that most profess Lutheranism, prefer to listen to Christmas carols with reindeer, snow, Nicholas than about the birth of the Savior.
In Finnlads there is not tolerated to send christmas wishes by sms or emails. Finns send postcards! What make a lot of working at post offices and records in this regard.
