We went today to sing the most beautiful Christmas carols in the beautiful old church in Oulunkylä, as did many others. Our kids love it!
Since we are normally no church goers, this is also an opportunity to show them a bit of history as well. After all, the Protestant church has been the basis for most things in our society. The lack of habit amused me today though, when the preast stood up to say a few words and my daughter wondered why only he gets to talk. Pretty unfair… No need to think these singing opportunities would be overly religious though, just a short 3 minute thought from the Bible and a prayer. Naturally you have the opportunity to donate as well.
Anyway, if you want to have a warm Christmas atmosphere singing together, you can find when and where in Finland they are sung here.
