Do you happen to have a childhood anime/cartoon when you were growing up? or what was your first couple of anime you have watched if I may ask? :) I hope you are doing okay!

"Finnish people believe that Santa Claus or Father Christmas lives in the north part of Finland called Korvatunturi (or Lapland), north of the Arctic Circle. People from all over the world send letters to Santa Claus in Finland. There is a big tourist theme park called 'Christmas Land' in the north of Finland, near to where they say that Father Christmas lives."

"In Finland, Santa might also be known as Joulupukki! (This really means 'Christmas Goat' as it was traditional in Finland that there was a Yule Goat who was scary and asked people for presents - and certainly didn't give any out! Over time the goat became the gift giver and then Santa took over the gift giving duties but the name of the Christmas Goat was still retained in Finland!) Joulupukki rides with reindeer leaves gifts under the Christmas tree but if you have been naughty you could end up with a bag of coal!"

The place you send your letter to Santa Claus or where Santa lives is in Finland? I only knew that Santa lives somewhere in the North Pole... wow.

Have you ever visited Christmas Land before? It sounds like it's like a Disney land there!
I kind of get that why reindeers were used! I never knew xD

涅槃静寂 ....it reminded me of postcards sent from that place...
mkraft
MKraft Yeah. We stole Santa Claus for our region ^^. Not sure how as I have not read about the history of it but it might be explained there. Might have been just that it was accepted as such over time. The Yule Goat is something I do remember in some ways being told to me about but have forgotten that fact over the years.

MKraft I may have visited Christmas Land when I was really young if it was there as my family did visit Lapland a few times in holidays. Went to a cottage there. Have a knife as a souvenier still from the region.
mkraft
MKraft Not sure about today as I dont watch tv anymore except at my parents house but we did have a tv program when I was young where children were able to send letters. It was about Santa Claus and he read some of the wishes that were sent to him to Korvatunturi. The whole thing was like a christmas tradition thing with specific shows and animations like "Santa Claus and the magic drum". Very nice.

One of my favourite anime and song from Angela~ I love her songs.
I can't seem to find the full version of it anywhere...

mkraft
MKraft Yup. Same for me. Also sad that finding full versions of certain great songs like this one is really difficult.

South Korea's national/representative animal seems to be a Siberian tiger. According to the web, there has been many folklore, history and arts associated with them in the past. However, I have heard that tigers were commonly found in a mountain forest region a long time ago.

In Canada, Beaver seems to be the national animal. There have been an expeditions sent out mainly for Beaver's pelt due to their demands for trading. These expeditions end up helping with mapping and establishing the country, Canada. Afterwards, Beaver has been used as a symbol for the code of arms, war, marking and coin(nickel).
"The beaver may not be considered ferocious like some countries other symbols, but it is capable of incredible feats of engineering, it is industrious, and it gets the job done."

MKraft A great animal to choose even if it is not ferocious. Having a symbol for something else than war/strength is in my opinion very nice to have especially for the modern times. Having a lion in here for the code of arms is maybe inspiring but also odd considering that those animals live so far away from us.

Sorry for the late reply, I have been in lack of energy lately...

Anyway, how did you like those movies? Oh, right, I remember you enjoyed watching anime called Planetes as well. Glad to see you watching a space theme movie is helping you feel better. Perhaps space theme can be a healing source for you like how comedy theme is like a healing remedy to me :) I think there was another space-related anime called Uchuu Kyoudai. I don't really know about it as I've only watched just a few episodes, but I heard it's a good anime.

I like Finland's traditional clothes material and design! Clothes look very warm, soft and comfortable to wear. Also, that red puffball attached to some of the hats seems unique and interesting. Do they happen to have any meaning and purpose to their design? like, are they some sort of representation or inspired by things such as animal, spirit or belief? I can also see that there seem to be lots of Reindeer(?) in that particular picture you have provided. They look so cool! I've seen some mooses around in Canada but not a reindeers (except for the holiday animation movies in regards to Christmas). I wonder if they are viewed as a sacred animal or well-known animal in Finland.

Finnish outdoor sauna?

hahahahahahah

MKraft Have not tried alcohol at all but yeah. Thats is a very good description of most finns. :)
pk_zero
PK Nice bro that's pretty rare now adays.I have never smoked, tried alcohol, or did drugs myself. Even though the peer pressure was in my face growing up, I stood my ground and rejected all the offers. I believe that has alot to do why I avoid most people IRL, since where I'm from 99% of people drink but me and my few IRL friends do not participate in those things.
hakutaku
涅槃静寂 Is vodka the favourite alcohol of Finns'?
mkraft
MKraft Yeah, have not touch any of the ones you mentioned PK. Don't want to ruin my health, go down to addiction or lose control as I'm reserved irl and have some size at least so would propably cause trouble if I was drunk etc.
mkraft
MKraft Beer is the favorite for most and most iconic is the one in the picture which I think is: Karhu. Name is a bit off but might be a special version of it in the picture. Most common clear spirit drink is Koskenkorva which is like vodka so that has been quite popular too but not sure how well it sells these days.
