Last week I showed Inge Löök's fun loving elves so this week its the fun loving aunties turn although things don't seem to be going too well. One turns to look at the clock, yikes look at the time! Are they cleaning ready for Christmas; the Finnish tradition is that the 9th December (St Anne's Day) is when baking, cleaning and brewing starts. The aunties will have left it until the last minute and everything has to be finished by 21st December (St Thomas's Day) but the clock is ticking the minutes away, will they be ready? The auntie on the left looks fed up with it all, she has had enough. The big feast of the year in Finland is on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day is for relaxation and simpler meals. But for 'Postcards for the Weekend' purposes lets imagine it is New Year's Eve, another big celebration, and as the clock says 10 it means they have only a little time left to be ready for their visitors and wish them Hyvää uutta vuotta - Happy New Year. Wishing you all health and happiness in 2017.
