Tips and useful sayings

...in Finnish.


If you are invited to Finnish home, remember to take your shoes off. When Finns meet a person for the first time, they usually shake hands. You can hug your friends and people that you know. Finns don’t really do cheek kisses.
Finns are usually in time, if they are not they will call, or send a text message.
