Christmas in Finland

Dear partners,

we wish you a merry Christmas and a happy New Year! Thank you for your cooperation during the first year of our project.  Here is a little description of how we celebrate Christmas in Finland, written by our 8th graders.

In Finland, Christmas Eve (24 December) is celebrated more than Christmas Day (25 December). On Christmas Eve, Father Christmas comes and gives gifts to children or the gifts are put under the Christmas tree. We believe that Father Christmas lives in Finland, in a place called Korvatunturi in Lapland. Father Christmas's sleigh is pulled by reindeer. Many people go to church on Christmas morning.

We eat many different kinds of food during Christmas time. We eat Christmas dinner on Christmas Eve, usually after Christmas sauna and before opening the presents. Christmas dinner includes for example carrot casserole, swede casserole, potatoes, peas, salmon or other kinds of fish. The most important food on the table for many Finns is ham. We also eat rice pudding and gingerbread and drink home-brewed beer or mulled wine during Christmas time.

Merry Christmas or "Hyvää Joulua" as we say in Finnish! :)

About us  – our attitude to being ‘green’ and sustainable development (Poland)

The progress of civilization brings a lot of facilities for contemporary society. Especially the young generation is willing to employ technological innovations. However, one has to remember that rapid economical progress of the world causes impendency for the natural environment.

For the School Complex No 7 in Toruń the idea of sustainable development […] became particularly important. […] The ecological character of the School Complex No 7 has been developed over the past ten years. It was started when the terms like ‘ecology’, ‘environmental protection’ or simply ‘green’ were not given a particular attention. […] In local region, our small motherland, the School Complex No 7 is associated with the world ‘green’ both literally and metaphorically. The effectiveness of the institution is emphasized with its image, which is a green island among the concrete blocks of flats. We do care about the history of our area through visiting and looking after historical places, as well as through collecting information about historical buildings and their past and present roles. […]

In 2004 the School Complex No 7 in Toruń was rewarded the first degree of the ‘Green Certificate’. […] As a result, the School Complex No 7 is now perceived as more attractive in both ecological and educational sense. It also opened the door for activating the local society and popularizing ecology among local people, what led to a significant improvement in the authority of the school. […]

Between 2007 and 2009 the school workers managed to carry into effect another activity in the field of sustainable development that was inseparably linked to local needs and the vision of our school. Within the frames of the project called “Our ‘Baszka’ that is the Toruń Stream” (Nasza Baszka czyli Struga toruńska) all the undertaken actions became a natural way of continuation of the previous activities and involved local activities and other subjects. […]

In the calendar of the school events different ecological actions that involve not only school workers but also local citizens are of prime importance. The list includes orienteering event along the educational path of the ‘Mokre’ District, family races along the Toruń Stream, ‘Clean up the world’, family picnics, St. Nicolaus Day for animals and charity concerts ‘It’s good to be together’. […]

The crowning achievement of the common effort is both the quality sign for an environmentally friendly school that propagates the idea of sustainable development, as well as the ‘Green Certificate’ of the second degree that is seldom to be found among schools in Poland.
