Valentine's day is really " a friendship day" here in Finland and I really like it that way! When I was younger, the popular girls got a huge pile of Valentine's Day cards and the rest (like me, who looked like a boy :D) a few. I think some teachers, like mine, made sure that everybody got at least one card. And yes, I REALLY did look like a boy as a kid. LOL
We are also celebrating "Laskiainen", according to Wikipedia, it's like Mardi Gras... Did know that and the celebration is VERY different here. Well, so is the weather ;)

Laskiainen in Finland (yes, that's my lovely Mini on a sled):
Laskiainen is just sledging (or skiing/ skating) with family or friends...
...and eating "Laskiaispulla", a mildly-sweet Finnish dessert bread with whipped cream. Nom nom, I've eaten 4 of those today. I'm feeling a bit sick now ;) LOL It's also known in other Nordic countries, like in Denmark (Fastalavnsboller). Thanks for info, Pixie :D You can find the recipe from CakeLab.
