Today has been a very special day in Cronhjelmskolan in Larsmo. We have celebrated our country's independence day which was December 6th. There was a big celebration for students and staff in our school's gymnasium. Since the Finnish flag is white with a blue cross on, the decorations were in blue and white.
Finland has now been independent for 99 years! Today's celebration contained glimpses from past and present and we sang of course our national anthem!
The program consisted of music, poems, a short theater performance, a short movie about Finland's history and then in the end we enjoyed traditional Finnish Christmas food!
