Springtime For Finland (2020)

Springtime For Finland (2020)

written by: Paula Puolakka


My fellow Finns used to laugh at me as well as mock and ridicule me when I used to tell them that we should appreciate every moment as if it was our last and especially cherish the time we can spend with our children at home. Now, as the virus is ravaging Finland, people are forced to do the things I encouraged them to do, but nobody wanted to. The orders to stay at home or to self-isolate and the brief lockdown of my county (Uusimaa) did not harm me and the kids. Homeschooling, for example, increased (if that’s possible) the levels of creativity, joy, and serenity in our home.

May G-d bless us all and keep us safe and secure also in the future.


Helsinki, Finland
