27.11.10 – “Joulu“. You guessed it, Christmas. Helsinki has holiday lights up throughout the city and most of the shopping areas are looking as if Finland too experiences Black Friday. Shoppers are filling the streets!!!
One of the largest and most popular department stores in Finland, Stockmann, which is located in the heart of Helsinki, is known for their holiday window displays. Two windows on the corner of the building are decorated for Christmas. On one of the windows they build a narrow wooden platform for small children to stand on for a better view. I don’t know what’s cuter, the window displays or the kids?
