Happy May 12

Today is the Day of the Finnish Identity, which is celebrated on the birthday of an early Finnish statesman.

How curiously humble to have a day in which you acknowledge that your national identity is something that came into being, or at least, into currency, at a time in historical memory, as opposed to trying to plant the false history that it was eternally in existence since time immemorial.
