    Just imagine dark christmasevemorning, path in snow to the sauna. Close to path is big icelanterns candels inside. In sauna is also just lanterns, quiet and calm and in sauna heater has living fire. Ah, just can't wait!!
    Wow! That's scary to me! Do you wear warm clothes while you walk to the sauna?

    I'm glad to have you here! I don't know enough about Finland.

    Well that's a horse stable, and next to that is a very lovely old mansion. That's located quite close to our home. Wish it was mine though. :D

    That sounds like my kind of place to be Christmas time. Can you share with us a Finnish cookie recipe you would make that time of year?
