Finnish Food (1/10)

In Finland, 24 December is the highlight of Christmas. All foods are made so that they are at their best on the Christmas Eve dinner. You need to have a lot of food at that dinner. Basically, we Finns prepare Xmas dishes for our family and an imaginary ice hockey team.

No wonder, that it is a food tradition in Finland to eat the same Christmas dishes on Christmas Day and Boxing Day. Funnily this leaves us in a situation where we anxiously wait for the mouthwatering Christmas dishes but after eating them for three days, we happily wait a year to eat them again.
