So it's Finland's Independence Day today, which is a very celebrated day here.
The TV shows documents about the war against Russia for Finland's independence etc. So I got home early today (had to go to school because I study in Sweden, even though I live in Finland...) and I've been watching a bunch of 5-minute war memory video recordings of war veterans telling about the war – most were saddening but interesting to listen to, but there was this one old man who seemed to have a humorous nature and his explanations made everyone in our house laugh! Sure it was rather rough and stuff but he explained it in such a way it eased the mood. :')
Mom told me to dress nicely some hours before that and nicely equals kimono to me – I don't really have any other nicer clothes, haha.
I decided I wanted to wear Finland's colors and so my white odori kimono with dark blue designs seemed like the obvious choice; I wanted something more festive. I paired it up with my new light-ish blue & mustard kaku obi I received yesterday – showing off the blue side, of course.
Excuse me for the crummy photos, bad lighting and that my hair is herpderp.

Here's a photo I took quickly while I had the sleeves tied, seen from the back:
|I look weirdly fat on this pic, sorry about that. x)|

Time to spend some time with my family.
