Christmas Peace was declared from Turku’s Vanha Suurtori. - Joulurauha julistetiin perinteisesti Turun vanhalla suurtorilla.

The first time the Christmas Peace was declared from Turku's Old Great Square is thought to have taken place as early as the 1320s. Since then, the tradition has continued uninterrupted, with only a few exceptions. The church had a major role in maintaining societal order, and in the early days of the declaration, it was used for this purpose.

Naantalil 30.9. at 18:15 - Klo 18.15


I was jogging and I had camera with me (Ixus 230HS). Suddenly there were marvellous lights, only five minutes, then came clouds and  everything was over. Then I ran and ran, lightly and gladly. -Kävin lenkillä Ixus-pokkarin kanssa. Äkkiä ilmestyivät hienot valot, jotka kestivät viitisen minuuttia. Sittenpä juoksu sujui hymyissä suin.
