Some simple cultural differences between American and Finns. Now how do these apply to Australians.? Good conversation starter for intercultural  understanding.

In pictures: A short history of the fabulously fun Finnish holiday Vappu | Suomi - Lukemista ja tekemistä verkossa | Scoop.it
Vappu, the Finnish version of Walpurgis Night and May Day, is a huge carnival-style festival that welcomes the coming of spring and warmer weather. Finns take to the streets and parks on the evening of April 30th to celebrate, drink, eat and socialize. For foreign visitors, it’s something of an unexpected sight to see hundreds (even thousands) of Finns kicking back in the park with alcohol and picnics, surrounded by colorful balloons and wearing what appear to be sailor caps.

11 things you probably didn't know about Finnish Nightmares 

11 things you probably didn't know about Finnish Nightmares  | Suomi - Lukemista ja tekemistä verkossa | Scoop.it
When we first stumbled across Finnish Nightmares on Reddit, Karoliina Korhonen’s Facebook page had 287 followers. It now has over 112 thousand! Karoliina’s cartoon, showcasing the awkward adventures of Finnish Matti as he tries to deal with the modern world, has taken Finland by storm. It comes as no surprise then to discover that Finnish Nightmares is one of the finalists at the SoMe awards. The event, organised by Aller Media, aims to celebrate social media success stories. And if anyone can lay claim to that it’s Matti, which is why he’s got our vote and we very much hope he’ll get yours too. If you agree, head on over to the page and vote now.

A large Scoop.it on Finland

 

Minun makuuni hieman liikaa Suomea kehuva. Toki olen itsekin isänmaallinen, mutta pros and cons on molemmat esitettävä tasapainoisessa arviossa. Itse en halua esittää matkailumainoksia.

This woman graduated by hanging out on Reddit for a year | Suomi - Lukemista ja tekemistä verkossa | Scoop.it
A 26-year-old Finnish woman, Salla Koivu, has taken hanging out on Reddit to a whole new level of dedication. And in the process gained her Master’s degree. Salla, a Helsinki native and a graduate from Aalto University School of Business decided the best way to complete her thesis on Why do people share online? was to hang out on Reddit for an entire year. Eager to find our more about this genius plan to legitimately mess around on the internet, we hooked up with her to find out what inspired her to go undercover and what she discovered about one of our all time favourite websites.

Fab Finland: 10 Finnish Eurovision songs that should have won | Suomi - Lukemista ja tekemistä verkossa | Scoop.it
Love it or hate it, Eurovision is back in all its kitsch glory. Finland’s Sandhja may already be out of the running, but the show must go on! So, as we eagerly wait to see who’ll be crowned this year’s winner, let’s take a trip down Eurovision memory lane and celebrate great Finnish contestants of yesteryear. Lordi maybe Finland’s only victor, but we think each and every one of these showcased songsters deserves a prize too. Crank up the volume, put on your dancing shoes and we’ll tell you why.

5 things Finnish people ask me about America, thanks to Hollywood

5 things Finnish people ask me about America, thanks to Hollywood | Suomi - Lukemista ja tekemistä verkossa | Scoop.it
I’ve lived in Finland for nearly 5 years after moving here from the United States. I’ve been asked many questions by curious Finns over the past few years, usually starting with “Why did you come here?” (to go to university) quickly followed by “But why did you stay here?” (because I love it here). After a couple of drinks, the conversation often turns to American stereotypes, in particular the American stereotypes and tropes that are portrayed in movies and television. A good part of the entertainment that the world consumes comes from Hollywood, so most Finns have seen the same tropes over and over and are left wondering whether it’s a case of Hollywood invention or Hollywood reflecting real life in the United States.

Jukka Melaranta's insight:

Suomea koskettelevia artikkeleita englanniksi. Kuvallisesti hieno skuuppi. Artikkelit ehkä hieman liiaksi ikävää Suomen ylistystä.
