There are flags out because it is Kalevala Day. I have posted about the Kalevala before, but it is such an important piece of literature that you cannot say too much about it. My limited knowledge of the Kalevala, the Finnish national epic poem, comes from the paintings of Akseli Gallen-Kallela and from the Canine Kalevala by Mauri Kunnas. Luckily, Sophia knows a lot more about the Kalevala!
