The event that draws the biggest crowd every year in the Finnish community in New York is the Christmas Bazaar held to benefit the Finnish School of New York, on the same day aLucia processionnd in the same space as the “Kauneimmat joululaulut” (Christmas Carols). It is also a testament to enduring volunteerism in the Finnish community. This year it was held on December 9th. The day offers a chance to stock up on Fazer’s Blue and other favorite sweets, homemade baked goods, rye bread by Nordic Breads and Karelian pies by Northern Rye; decorations, books in Finnish for adults and kids, knitted socks and various gift items. Many happy encounters take place among expats and other friends of Finland who haven’t seen each other for a while (or who have!) On the ground floor, a cafe serving traditional salmon sandwiches , “pulla”, rice porridge with “kiisseli” , etc. was up all day long.
