A local tradition is to use the saunas, stay in them as long and you can bare and then make a quick dash for the back door to roll in the snow!! The idea of this is to do it all in the nude, crazy but fun and good for your skin!!
Apparently it's considered very rude to turn someone down if they ask you to dance, and i think it's polite to give them 2 dances.
Not sure how offended they would be if turned down as i hid in the corner of the dancing bar like a scaredy cat!
There are about 180,000 reindeers in Lapland. The Sammi people own the reindeers and use their meet, horns and fur for many uses. If you visit reindeer farms so take in mind killing reindeers is part of the game. You can find chopped heads of reindeers in the back yard of the house. Killing animals is part of living in the far north. It is always been like that.
The photo was taking in the Sanilla farm close to Ivalo.
