Finland: A Primer

I have struck up a correspondance with Markus, one of the gentlemen I met at the Creative Gamers Conference in January, who was also at DiGRA. Through this correspondance, I am learning much about Finland!

Any such learning, of course, begins with an understanding of sauna and its accessories. Sauna often concludes with rolling naked in the snow. (Mind you, the culture of sauna very distinctly discourages rolling nekkid in the snow.)

For extra credit, there is the Kalevala, the Finnish equivalent of the Gilgamesh epic, which ends in an interesting adaptation of the Nativity.
