ex_finnish_604: (You're everything that keeps me)

[A - Action: To Finland, Midsummer means long summer nights with constant daylight, a celebration of light and the midnight sun. Despite the fact that Mayfield's sun rises and sets quite regularly and that this evening would be no different, Midsummer's Eve is simply something that Finland can't pass up, and as such any neighbours or passerbys may see him erecting a midsummer maypole early in the day, decorating the perimiter of the door with flowers in the afternoon (or, more accurately, chasing his while fluffball of a puppy that keeps trying to take them), cooking questionable Finnish food and letting it cool in the windowsill, or raising a Finnish flag in front of his home at 6PM.

B - Action: All throughout the evening, tendrils of smoke may be seen rising from the backyard of 336 Brady Lane. In addition to the light steam that rises from the sauna (which isn't that unusual, as Finland seems to be unable to go for three or four days without one), smoke will begin to rise from a bonfire that is lit at midnight. Finland, in turn, will be out drinking by the bonfire with whomever else wishes to stop by. Feel free to assume that he invited your character if he's spoken to them more than once or twice! Even if he doesn't know them well, he'd probably bring it up during any type of conversation if your character's spoken to him in the past week or so.]

[ooc: I'm so sorry for being horrible with posting! I really need to make actual posts instead of tagging around until the end of time. In any case, tags may be a little slow because my normal computer is being repaired and the connection here is cutting out because of the storms. However, I'll reply as quickly as possible!]

[Over the past few weeks, 336 Brady Lane has been slowly accumulating a mass of holiday decorations. Wreathes and ribbons are hung on the front door and windows, and a fresh Christmas tree (it appears to be real?) can be seen in the living room from outside. Lights are wound through the bushes and up the trees outdoors, and look quite nice and fairly modest for their sheer number.

However, today's decorations are a little different. A large Finnish flag is hung by the door and smaller flags line the yard, while blue and white candles can be seen in the windowsill and Finland will happily run to light them once the sun sets.

Neighbours may notice that a sweet cake-like smell wafts from the open windows and housemates are sure to discover that Finland's been acting even more cheerful than usual both yesterday and today, cooking both days and often humming softly to himself.

You guessed it, Today's Finland's birthday and independence day! And he's as delighted as he could possibly be.]

[If you happen to be on Brady Lane, you're likely to spot a tiny bright eyed boy innocently crawling around and exploring his surroundings. He's peering out from behind telephone poles, watching passerbys through the bushes, walking up and picking flowers in front of random houses, climbing up on top of the 336 mailbox to find out what that little red flag is, and simply wandering around looking especially lost before tripping over his cloak and falling flat on his face. A little useless, but still cute! Sure, he's quiet in the sense that he doesn't speak unless needed, but his soft, innocent giggling can probably be heard throughout the street.

You guessed right, Mayfield. Another victim! This time it's Finland, now from around 1200, right after Finland had become a part of Sweden and the Swedish Conquests had ended. He'll be looking for 'Ruotsi', Sweden, but honestly, how could anyone say no to that innocent face? Just look at him! All replies with be from [livejournal.com profile] seurata . ♥]

[Being Easter and all, the festival lover Finland is even more cheerful than usual.]

Happy Easter, everyone! I made a few pans of Mämmi to celebrate the holiday. It's a traditional dessert from my house so you should all come try some! I'll be outside of my house at 336 Brady Lane if you want to stop by. I'm sure that you'll all like it a lot!

[After the phone call has been made, he runs outside and takes a seat beside a small table at the end of his driveway. It's decorated with pretty flowers, a bowl of dyed eggs, and a vase filled with thin branches that have feathers tied to them. In addition to this, there is a notably large pan of a strange dark brown substance accompanied by a bowl of sugar and a small pitcher of cream.... and numerous plates and forks. If you don't know that this is Mämmi, the aforementioned sweet Finnish Easter dessert made of rye flour, rye malt, molasses and dried orange peel, it probably looks fairly unappetizing to say the least. If you're brave enough to try it, however, Finland will be glad to give you as much as you want.]
