Finn Christmas Food Finns do honor their traditions. The traditional Christmas dinner is a prime example of such time-honored tradition. No Finn would even dream of celebrate the Christmas in the non-traditional way. Even the youngest children know what belongs to Christmas. The sights, smells and tasted create a unique atmosphere well-loved by everyone.
