The liveliest period for celebrations in Finland begins in autumn with Father's Day, Independence Day, numerous Christmas parties thrown by associations and companies and long, relaxed Christmas lunches with friends, family, colleagues and customers. The turn of the new year is also celebrated together with friends with a New Year's dinner and champagne. Russian guests arrive in Finland in droves around Epiphany to celebrate their own Christmas, and so Christmas dinner is eaten traditionally then, too.
After the Christmas table is cleared, blini and caviar season starts, closely followed by lamb and quark dishes at Easter. Spring celebrations begin no later than with a May Day lunch, which typically includes salted fish and herring, Finnish 'sima' mead and doughnuts. Mother's Day comes right after May Day, when mothers, grandmothers and mothers-in-law alike are treated to an extensive Mother's Day lunch followed by some mouthwatering Mother's Day cake. The end of May brings with it school leaving and graduation parties. Summer is dedicated to family celebrations. Whatever the occasion – Hotel Arthur has decades of experience!
