NOKIA – Friend’s Day the Finnish Way

Valentine’s Day in Finland, although a popular day to get married or engaged on, is actually referred to as ‘Ystävänpäivä’, which means ‘Friend’s Day’. This is a day where people write cards and share gifts with their closest friends.

As you may know, we love doing things differently here on Nokia Connects too, especially if it involves Finland! That’s why we want to invite you to not only take part in Finnish Valentine’s day, but to take one day out of your busy blogging schedule and share some words about a friend, family member or fellow Nokia community member that you really appreciate.

We’re always writing, posting, tweeting and talking about mobile and technology, so we rarely stop to take stock of all the wonderful people around us and thank them for their help, support and in my girlfriend’s case patience! Having just said that, Ystävänpäivä is not about my girlfriend, so we can forget that :)

Between now and the 14th, write a post on your blog or in the comments section below, about one of the best, most inspirational or caring friends in your life. Share your stories with us on Twitterwith #NokiaValentine and we’ll feature our favourites next week.
