Habits of a Finn

If you have been looking into moving to Finland, you have probably come across some more or less crazy habits of the Finns. Well yes, almost every family has their own sauna, some enjoy submerging in the cold winter sea, and we drink a lot and talk a little. The truth is there are as many Finnish habits as there are Finns (some 5.400.000). Due to the vicinity of Sweden the people on the Ostrobothnian coast also have quite a few habits borrowed from their neighbour across the Kvarken Sea. Add all the habits of all those who have moved to Ostrobothnia from other countries (more than 3 %), and the result is a mishmash of happy diversity. In other words, come as you are, bring your own habits and adopt some new ones!
