In Finland the Christmas season is heralded by small parties called “Little Christmas” /”pikkujoulu” parties. The first graders enjoyed their “Little Christmas” on Friday at the end of a hectic week In the morning the children decorated gingerbread cookies. They also played board games and worked on puzzles together.
