You know what's a fun thing to do at night with your kids? Especially on a cold, wintry night? Hanging out in a cemetery. Who wouldn't love/be scarred forever by that? Well, that's what they do in Finland! On Christmas Eve, Finns take their children to the cemetery to place candles on the graves of their loved ones. I'm sure all those flickering candles don't throw off scary shadows at all. I guess that there are aspects of this tradition that are heart-warming, but, mostly, it just seems nightmare-inducing to me. And I'm an adult. Sort of.
