Get Finternational course

I joined to a lot of Get Finternational events and every event was very exciting and interesting for me. One of my most favorite event is “visit Christmas market at the old great square”. In the event we visited the Christmas market in Turku and wrote a report about it, what we had saw, what had been new or interesting or surprising to us.

That was my first time to visit a Christmas market in my life. Everything was so lovely and traditional. I bought a blue with white candle, honey, crape came with cream and jam, and a cup of coffee. I really love it. I wish my hometown will held a Christmas market in soon future.


The thing I most enjoyed in the event is taking a photo with Santa Claus and his wife. I went to see them and set between them. I was little embarrassed but it is a great memory for me. I am sure that Santa Claus is the most famous person in Finland and I am really happy to meet with the man and one of my unforgettable experience.


In the event I was able to experience Christmas market, and next I would like to experience traditional Finnish Christmas. For instance meal, dessert, decoration, words, and so on. I have drunk a traditional Finnish drink “Glogi” in another Get Finternational event. It is very tasty and I bought some bottle of it. I will try to ask my tutor (she is Finnish) to what could I challenge about Christmas things. If it is possible I would love to do something about traditional Finnish Christmas!
