The Green and Purple

by wjw on March 17, 2020

IMG_0266Had a very enjoyable St. Urho’s Day, topped off with a supper of Finnish pancakes.   The only thing that would have improved the day would have been Finnish gin, but I can’t get Napue in the States.

I notice that St. Urho’s Wikipedia page links to a list of “fictional saints.”  And the other ones aren’t? I thought.

Let us all chant along with Finland’s mighty saint:

“Heinäsirkka, heinäsirkka, mene täältä hiiteen!”  (“Grasshopper, grasshopper, go from hence to hell!”)

Long live the green and purple!
