Yesterday I saw my first penkkarit! ^u^ It's a yearly school event that includes trucks, candy and masquerade!
We stood by a school waiting for the trucks. Soon we heard the kids screaming – the trucks were near! Candy was flying! Soon the trucks reached us. I admit, it was one of those times when Finns made me feel a bit jelly. We don't have anything like that in Russian schools. I never got to throw candy from a truck! *sad dramatic face*
Much waving was exchanged.
I highly recommend Googling 'penkkarit' images. ;p
Most of the candy we'd collected we gave to the kids, but these we kept.
