Come and learn the Finnish version of "trick or treat"!
Families with children - and all young-minded adults, too! - are invited to come familiarize and prepare for Finnish Easter traditions.
In addition to going on an egg hunt, we decorate willow twigs and rehearse the whisking rhyme children chant on Palm Sunday to neighbors in exchange for candy:
"VIRVON VARVON, TUOREEKS TERVEEKS, TULEVAKS VUODEKS, VITSA SULLE, PALKKA MULLE"
A free translation of the rhyme is: "With this twig I wish you blessings and good health for next year. You get the twig, I get a treat"
Please register through the link below by Wednesday, March 28.
