Local elections (for city councils) are up in couple weeks and here's something I didn't know or at least had forgotten: foreigners get to vote too.
Specifically, they must have had permanent residence in a town for two years, except citizens of Nordic and EU countries only need to be residents currently.
This adds up to about 5% of eligible voters.

Finland is world's leading producer of caraway.
More field area is (commercially) used in Finland to grow caraway than to grow potatoes.

First Taco Bell of Finland opened yesterday.

Finland is the first country to include "pulled oats" - a substitute to pulled pork - in the menu.

In beginning of november 2017 it became legal for food products to include insects in Finland.

Last night there was 3.5 earthquake in western Finland. This was strongest since 2000.
Quakes in Finland originate to Mid-Atlantic Ridge.
