1. There is no word for “please” in our language.
Instead, we can sneak the please into every verb we use by conjugating them correctly. And you call us rude?
2. There are no polar bears in Finland.
But there are many brown bears here annoyed that their white cousins are stealing their thunder.
3. We do hang out naked, even with strangers.
Sauna is a big part of our culture. It is a place to unwind, to heal, to socialize. And sweating in +100 Celsius degrees’ room would make anyone want to get rid of their clothes, right? Do not worry, though. It is completely fine if you want to wear your swimming suit or a towel. We do not consider it rude, it just shows that you’re not from around here.
