Kamiya Jani Reveals Weird Things About Finland That You Won’t Find Anywhere Else

Imagine this: you step outside bundled in layers, only to be greeted by a staggering -27°C. Brrr! While this might send shivers down most spines, Finns take it in stride. Embracing the cold is a national pastime, with winter sports and cosy evenings by the fireplace a cherished part of their culture. Finland, the land of a thousand lakes, might seem like a typical Nordic country. But, there are some interesting weird things about Finland!

During summer, Finland flips the script entirely. The midnight sun phenomenon bathes the country in 24-hour sunlight. Imagine playing Frisbee at 2 am or enjoying a late-night swim under a sky that refuses to get dark – it’s an experience unlike any other.

Finns also have a unique relationship with a certain beverage: coffee. Forget a single cup in the morning – Finns are the world’s biggest coffee consumers. Here, coffee isn’t just a perk, it’s a productivity booster. The more you drink, the more efficient you’re thought to be. So, if you ever find yourself working with a Finn, be prepared for a never-ending flow of coffee breaks!

In terms of productivity, Finns are renowned for their uncompromising integrity. Don’t expect sugar-coating or beating around the bush. Directness is valued, and a simple “yes” or “no” will suffice. This might seem harsh at first, but Finns see it as a form of respect and a way to get things done quickly.

Now, here’s where things get interesting: the sauna. This isn’t just a place to relax; it’s a social hub. Business meetings, celebrations, even catching up with friends – all take place in the sweltering heat of a sauna. Finns believe a good sweat session cleanses not just the body, but the mind and spirit as well.

And after a good sauna session? How about a dip in a freezing lake? Plunging into icy waters is a common practice in Finland, believed to improve circulation and overall well-being. Talk about a temperature shock!

Finland boasts a surprisingly robust social security system. Unemployed individuals receive a monthly stipend until they find new jobs. This not only reduces stress but also allows people to focus on job searches without financial worries.
