Easter in Finland is an exciting mix of flavors, history, and traditions. Besides, celebrating the religious roots of the Christian feast, Easter in Finland is all about welcoming the long-awaited spring after the dark and cold winter months.  It is often considered as planting the seeds for happiness and health for the approaching summer season.

 

On Palm Sunday, palmusunnuntai, which also means the beginning of the traditions - like the little Easter witches arriving at your doorstep. 

 

For Many Finns, Easter also means a break from the hectic life in the middle of the spring.  In Finland, Good Friday and Easter Monday are public holidays, and many families take the opportunity to spend the long weekend away. Surprisingly, quite often they travel to northern Finland to see snow one last time before the summer.
