Back at home! I’m a Christmas person and the very first day after our arrival, to get into the Christmas mood we head to the Senate Square where Helsinki Christmas Market is hold. There are over 100 booths selling Finnish craft, design, canned foods and sweets, but the absolute highlight of the market is a gorgeous old fashioned merry-go-round! The ride is free of charge, which shows real Christmas spirit, and traditional barrel organ music makes the ride just perfect. My head was spinning after one ride, but my son rode it three times in a row with the best smile ever on his face.
Carousel – winter fun for everyone!
