Independence Day '13

Yesterday (6th Dec.) we celebrated Independence Day in Finland. :) In my family we don't usually do anything that special that day. It's a day for spending time with family, tho my brother wasn't that into it. On the last post I told you guys some history of Finland and how Finland became independent. It's something for what we should thank the war veterans and people, who lived during those times.


I spent the day baking Xmas cookies, listening to Xmas songs and watching TV. I also tried to concentrate on studying but that didn't really work. heh. Here are some pictures that I want to share with you. :)
