December 6th is a very important day in Finland and for Finnish people in general. On this day Finland’s Independence Day is celebrated, one of the most awaited holidays in Finland. For this reason, our guest for this episode is Soila Sariola, a Finnish musician, singing teacher, singer, a member of acapella group Rajaton, and mother. And it is our honour to have her as a guest for this episode, as she is the first Finnish celebrity guest on Mastering Finland Podcast!

Petra discusses with Soila Finland’s Independence Day celebrations, the so-called "linnan juhlat" (=castle celebrations) in Finnish, how it became an annual tradition and how the hand-shaking with the President of Finland was established. Besides the official celebration, Soila shares with us the way Finns, in general, celebrate this day.

Additionally, Soila as a former guest at the linnan juhlat in 2012 shares the insights from this celebration and talks about the most special moment including the presidential couple.

Finally, Soila starts this episode with one of the most prominent songs of Finnish history, "Finlandia" by Jean Sibelius. Closing the podcast, she sings the song "Kulkuset" aka "Jingle bells", as we are approaching the Christmas festive days!
