HAPPY VAPPU WEEK EVERYONE!
If this is your first Finnish Vappu ever, let me tell you a bit of it: Vappu (May Day) is the Finnish version of Labour Day, but it is also the biggest student event of the academic year in Finland. Vappu is celebrated in a carnival-style manner, often for several weeks at a time.
The culinary traditions of vappu include sima and munkki (mead & sugar coated doughnuts) and tippaleipä (deep-fried funnel cakes). Not particularly healthy but delicious! You can read more about the Finnish Vappu celebrations from HERE.
However, this year Vappu is going to be a bit different - we will celebrate it from our homes, virtually. ISYY's Wappuradio is broadcasting every day to keep you company (and in the mood for Vappu!) until the 1st of May, and if you are still looking something to do, check this #virtualvappu website out!
Let's spread only the Vappu atmospehere, not the virus! ❤️
