Welcome to the "Traditional" group. It would help some words about this tradition to let us know more. Thank you. Elena
Vappu, or May Day is a national holiday, an event for Finns to emphatically welcome spring after several months of little daylight. It can be compared to Mardi Gras with parades and parties. Traditionally, the event begins on the eve of Vappu by former and current students putting on their student caps (graduation cap).wikipedia.
