A Finnish Angel

This week I received a postcard from Finland:

As you can see it shows a person making an angel in the snow. It's really common in Finland to make this because of the big amount of snow that falls.
I think that the stamp is from the same collection as the one that is in the hand made postcard.
(see it here: http://mypostcrossingexperience.blogspot.com/2011/02/hand-made-postcard.html )

Curiosity about Finland:
  • In Finnish enkeli means angel and lumi snow. I thought it is quite funny that lumi is snow because, in Portuguese, we have a similar word: lume, that means fire.

Best Wishes!
