Happy Independence Day, Finland! I've been to Helsinki about 8 times. Always had a good time there... I haven't been there in a few years...but is the Irish pub still there just up the hill from the central train station? Hopefully I'll get back for a visit soon. Molly Malones!! Loved it there.

Congratulations Finland!

In 5 years, I wonder what the party will be like.

Well, it was Russian territory a century and before that it was Swedish territory for over 600 years. Was just like another country in Sweden..

While this is true, it was still a state called Finland which means Finland existed before 1917.

I take it this is a day that you all come together to rue the missed opportunity to be part of Russia, and mourn this loss.

At least that's what the unionists tell us will happen here.

EDIT: Oh, and congrats!
