Advent calendar Box 8

advent calendar 8Today it was flag day for Finland’s most famous composer, Jean Sibelius. His most popular piece is Finlandia. It’s still varnish looking to this day and so is the monument in Helsinki. Even if I’ve been to the city a lot of times, I still haven’t seen it up close. We have driven past it but that’s all.

It’s very popular among tourists and especially in the summer season. So if you ever visit the capital or Finland in general, that’s one thing to see. One of these days I will too.
