The Warm Spirit of Christmas
In Finland the Christmas atmosphere traditionally forms of having family gathered together, of good food and of course of Christmas sauna. Sauna is the place where whole family goes to freshen up and relax for the special evening.
Traditionally people see a bit more effort for the Christmas sauna than a sauna bath on a normal evening. An outdoor sauna that has been hibernating in the snow might have been heated up for the special occasion and in has brought candles and juniper twigs.
In the sauna daily worries fade away at the latest and a festive relaxation fills everyone’s mind.
