Please join us this coming Thursday for an evening of traditional Finnish fun!

The first annual finnophile pikkujoulu (Little Christmas) will take place at the Black Swan Tavern on DEC 14, 2006. (Danforth/Broadview – on the subway line, lots of parking)

 After a string of successful pubnights, a handful of the “regulars” have decided to step it up a notch and bring a taste of a long-loved Finnish tradition to Toronto.

As always, the premise of the evening is simple: to meet new friends and greet old ones. However, this time good ol’ Joulupukki (Finnish Santa) will be joining us, bringing along special treats for everyone and serving hot glögg.

AND, if that weren’t enough there will be yummy homemade Finnish pastries and other baked goods and even my Mom is getting in on the act, promising a batch of her famous lihapiirrakkas (if you dont know by now you better get there early).

The evening will kick off around 8pm, however feel free to come earlier if you like.

This is an INCLUSIVE event so please feel free to invite/bring along friends and family as we share a little slice of Finland in the heart of Toronto.

And a BIG thank you to Tuuli, Samantha, Paula, Rita, Riitta, Markku and others for organizing our little soiree.

Christmas Cheers, Markus
