  1. The Finnish language is practical yet poetic. The word for world is maailma, which means land (maa) & air (ilma).
  2. Finns love to party so much that they put the word in the plural! #bileet 🎉
  3. The word for dragon is lohikäärme, which means salmon snake, and that’s quite amusing.
  4. The word for Wednesday is keskiviikko, which means mid-week.
  5. The word for month is kuukausi, which means moon phase. 🌙And each month is given a different moon name. For example June translates to Summer Moon (kesäkuu), September to Autumn Moon(syyskuu), and December to Christmas Moon (joulukuu).
  6. The word for hippopotamus is virtahepo, which means flow-pony.
  7. In most languages the word for Finland is very similar (Finnland, Finlande, Finska), but in Finnish it’s Suomi.
