Advent Calendar Door 5 🕯

Updated: Dec 7, 2022

Christmas in Finland 🇫🇮

You probably already know that Wolt was founded in Helsinki, Finland in 2014. And our HQ is still there. So we sent a message to our Finnish colleagues, asking how they celebrate Christmas.

The Pre-Christmas time in Finland is cold and snowy. Depending on their preferences, Finish people like to go play ice-hockey, plunge into a hole in the ice or construct gingerbread houses.

On the 24th, it is common to decorate the Christmas tree in the morning and eat rice porridge. The lucky one might catch the almond in the porridge. Finding the almond in your porridge means good luck and maybe your wishes will come true!

Later in the evening dinner consists of traditional Finnish Christmas cuisines: ham, salmon, potatoes and even rutabaga casserole. Your belly better be full when the Santa Claus arrives from Korvatunturi. Depending on the niceness or naughtiness of our Finish colleagues during the year, they will receive presents based on the reporting of the Santa Claus' elves. 🎅🏼

The official Christmas holidays in Finland last from December 24th to 26th. However, it is very common that the Finns are vacationing until Epiphany on January 6th, not to mention the wild new year celebrations! 🍾🎊

Do you have a traditional holiday meal you eat?
