The first of May is celebrated in Finland like almost any other holiday, by drinking heavily. Vappu, as it's called here, also has balloons, streamers and funny hats. I went to a picnic with other goths, since the weather was nice (= it was not snowing). I got the idea for a picnic earlier, since we were planning to go to have one anyway with a few friends and usually there are goth picnics nearly every week in Tampere in the summer, so I set up a Facebook event and yay, so many people came!
Amursk the grill was probably the most popular visitor (what could be better than a portable barbecue with loudspeakers and disco lights?!) and there were around thirty people on the picnic, and the whole park was full of people celebrating. I met lots of friends and some new faces, ate sausage, mushrooms and marshmallows, then continued to have a pint at a local bar, then went home to get some more to drink and we continued to a party at our neighbours'. It was a long day!
|Love Mystral from Mustaa Pitsiä was also there!|
|Me and my other half eating sausages. Apparently his vegetarian ones are not so delicious ;)|
|Look how beautiful the Finnish nature is this time of year ;P|
