Ducks on Teemu's yacht: Sunseeker Manhattan 74 :



I think that model is suited only for 20 people so some had to take other boat too I guess.

Bit of mis-infromation on that article, the ice/rink has been NHL size since the start of the SM-liiga season. Jokerit have played their all home games so far in that small rink.

**** that nelonen pro channel.. Its even worse than Urho TV. Only shows 1 game per month then the finals in SM-Liiga.. If you want to watch the finals, you haveto make an year long one way deal to it and pay whole the year just to see finals wich last like 3 weeks.. So i didint take that crap. And now those idiots get that game... Wow, i hate Nelonen, i truly hate it. Worst TV-channel ever existed on earth.

Hey don't hate the player, hate the game. The way they sell those TV rights is retarded, but of course Nelonen will take advantage of it, it's a business after all...

I would get it if they show that actual NHL game on Pro1 (Ducks - Sabres) but why they don't show that exhibition game for free? Do those idiots think someones going to buy the channel because of it? People are just going to be mad, but not buying the channel for that höntsä-game. Thats called bad business, they should've shown that game free and then advertise their pay-channel's NHL features during the game.

Also, they hold the rights, but they dont show games live on ruutu.fi.. What a jerks, they wont even show the games live on internet paystream, its Nelonen's fault that 90% dont see SM-Liiga finals. Its all they fault. Damn I just hate them, business or not.

Poronkäristys( reindeer sautée??) is the only reason I visit Kajaani. It's best thing i can think of after Metso (western capercaillie??) roast, which is even better than any italian food including pizza. A plate of metso roast in Helsinki costs about 100€, if you even can find it.

?? = just found those translations, i actually doubt if they're right..

Santas predecessor the Christmas goat brings the gifts. These days he likes to disguise himself as santa but he usually arrives in a Toyota Corolla.

We don't eat reindeer meat during Xmas so the production line is off for a while so some of the reindeers get to ride with that Coca Cola Santa.

this Finnish movie tells the truth about Santa:

Speak for yourself, in my family we eat reindeer every Christmas. As a child I had a hard time understanding why we would eat Rudolphs friends but I was told that they were of a different species, after all Santas reindeers can fly!

I think its the oldest fashion of santa claus, in Finland we "believe" in that kind santa too these days. I mean the kind, unevil santaclaus.

The old fashion of santa spanked you and it had horns. Because of those horns its still called in Finland joulupukki.

Also because of that old fashion they still say for kids that you only get brushwood as a xmas present if you dont act nicely before xmas. Because the original santa spanked you with brushwood if you werent acting nice lol.



"You better watch out

You better not cry

Better not pout

I'm telling you why

Santa Claus is coming to town"

On a more serious note... why was the movie in half Finnish/half English? Most posters here type English just fine (probably better than I can lol). And a couple of Finns that I've met at hockey games etc although had some difficulty did a decent job and communicating.

Is English used a lot or taught in school in Finland?

Here it's coal if you're bad... but it's interesting to see the manifestations of the traditions.

And that Santa in the other video is my kind of Santa... biting the fake kids ear a la Mike Tyson... LOVE IT!!!

Sorry for being so off topic.... the Finnish culture just raised too many questions for me.

Lots of off-topic lol.. Before modern Christmas the 'joulupukki' was a character of the autumn harvest celebrations where it would go from house to house and expect people to feed him and keep him entertained. The clergy of course banned the old celebrations and the pukki got slowly transformed into what it is today.

Didn't he know the gnome was on the boat with him??

The movie was made for international markets. Dvd/blu-ray release also in the US next month.

English education starts from grade 3 when you are about 10 years old and international tv shows aren't dubbed (except some children series/movies).

Everyone has English lessons since 3rd-4th grade. Most of TV-shows are from States and not dubbed but subtitled. Basically everyone in Finland can speak English, but only few can pronounce. Biggest problem is that almost everyone has the vocabulary but are afraid to speak so when they do it's not fluent but nervous and awkward.

Well, the fact that we have another official language, Swedish, and its taught from 7th grade and English is taught from 3rd grade tells you alot. Its most important foreign language easily and even more important than our second mother tongue. And you see it used even in finnish tv-commercials, because in some commercials it sounds cooler and so on..

Im sure the next generations will speak english fluent and write better because internet. Even if we allready do it pretty good (not including me, using hfboards is actually part of my plant to learn english lol)
