Runeberg Day celebrates the birthday of Johan Ludvig Runeberg on 5 February, The well-known and loved treat, the Runeberg tart, has been named after our national poet.
Festive days often involve food and delicacies. Runeberg Day is no exception: Finns have enjoyed Runeberg tarts since the mid-nineteenth century. The takeaway pastries available at Amica restaurants are baked using recipes that are as close to the original as possible, and they have been baked with experience and expertise.
Don't forget to try the small Runeberg tarts – perfect, bite-sized treats with the well-loved, delicious taste!
People often forget to acknowledge the support of their friends, but Valentine's Day on 14 February provides an excellent opportunity to do just that. Buy delicious cupcakes at an Amica restaurant for your home or office, or treat your friends to delicacies in the middle of the working day. Surprise your friends with Amica treats!
Unlike elsewhere in the world, the day is not only for lovers in Finland. It reminds us of what is truly important in life. Without good friends and loved ones, life might be less enjoyable.
There are many different ways to remember a friend, the postcard probably being the best known, but not the most personal. Amica's cupcakes and other treats such as cake lollipops add a personal touch, and are an excellent alternative to a postcard.
Shrovetide is about enjoying good food and spending time together in the fresh winter weather. Order Shrovetide delicacies from an Amica restaurant to be enjoyed at home, with friends, or outdoors after sledging downhill. You will have more time for friends and the great outdoors!
Shrove Tuesday is celebrated seven weeks before Easter. In the Catholic church, it has traditionally marked the beginning of Lent, a 40-day fasting season. This joyful celebration in early spring is a combination of Finnish traditions and a Church festival.
Its purpose was to embrace spring and summer to ensure a rich harvest. Today, sledging downhill symbolises leaving the winter behind and looking forward to the spring.
Food is an essential part of Shrovetide traditions – pea soup, Shrove buns and downhill sledging in good company.
